Event Description

The Center for Assault Treatment Services is hosting its 19th Annual Victory for Victims Walk/Run on Saturday, April 24, 2021, at Woodley Park, 6350 Woodley Ave. (Site 1), Van Nuys, CA.

The 2021 Victory for Victims Walk/Run is planning to move forward as both an in-person and virtual event. This means that participants will have the choice of registering as either Classic (in-person) runners, or Virtual (remote) runners.

DISCLAIMER: Please be aware that, at this time, all parks falling under the jurisdiction of the City of Los Angeles are open only for passive recreation and the park service will not issue permits to any event-related activities. Though we are hopeful that the COVID-19 crisis will have abated to such an extent that event-related permits will resume prior to April 2021, we cannot guarantee that this will be the case. If you or your team is registered to complete a Classic Walk/Run one week prior to the event, and Woodley Park has still not opened permitting for event-related activities, then your registration status will be automatically converted to Virtual and you will be notified of this change by email.
