 - Born from the energy of the Women's Marches, the Persist 5K Run/Walk is an event for all of us to champion the rights of women and raise money for the most vulnerable among us. This is a chance to wear our hats again and experience the tremendous solidarity of togetherness as we put in motion a symbol of resistance and solidarity, raise awareness of our voice in our state, and support Vermont women in need. Race proceeds will benefit the Vermont Women’s Fund.
