Members of the community gathered on Main Street Saturday morning to run a 5K in support of domestic violence awareness. This year was the seventh year that the 5K has been hosted in hope to raise awareness, rally support and encourage anyone witnessing domestic violence to come forward.

Frank Ori spoke before the 5K to give some background information. October is national Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Nearly one in four women have experienced violence by a significant other.

Will and Chad Laursen, ages 17 and 14, were the first two to finish the 5K, coming in at times of 21.43 and 22.04, respectively.

Price has a local Domestic Violence shelter and their own hotline, which is (435) 637-6589.
