iRun4Good came about through For Our City Gilbert. For Our City Gilbert is about connecting those who want to help with those in need in our community. There is more than enough good will to provide true heart felt giving to those in need. This becomes possible by breaking down the silos in our community and replacing them with meaningful connections. Loving human interaction is the best resource for real healing and relief and can only be provided as a voluntary act; everyone needs to love and be loved. People helping people is the way to lasting transformation of ourselves and our community.

iRun4Good’s inaugural race took place on October 22, 2016 and benefited victims of domestic violence. Watch the video below by the Gilbert Police Department regarding domestic violence. This was a great opportunity to rally for the good of the community and raise awareness while having fun and making a positive difference in Gilbert. Faith-groups, nonprofits, businesses, schools, individuals and local government were all invited to participate. $10,000 was raised and presented to the Gilbert Police Department's Domestic Violence Unit to support individuals and families impacted by domestic violence.
Why it’s important?
- Every five minutes in Arizona, a law enforcement officer responds to a domestic violence call. (Arizona Governor’s Office).
- In 2014, there were 109 domestic violence fatalities in Arizona. (Arizona Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence)
- In Arizona, one or more children witness a domestic violence incident every 44 minutes (Arizona Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence)
