Shelter House – Domestic Violence Center and Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort are teaming up for the 2nd Annual Luminaria Run. The course will be lined with more than 2,000 luminarias, lighting the path for the walkers/runners and representing how Shelter House and its community partners light the way to a safer place for victims of domestic violence in Okaloosa and Walton counties. The race includes 5k and 9k courses winding throughout Sandestin. The 9k distance serves as a reminder that a woman is assaulted or beaten every nine seconds in the U.S. The public is encouraged to decorate a luminaria bag to be placed along the course in honor or in memory of a loved one.
