Run For Their Lives 5K Walk/Run is a 5k dedicated to bringing awareness to the very real issue of human trafficking that affects not only the world, but our nation and community as well. There is an opportunity within each of our lives to confront the struggles of others and to do what we can to help those in need. All proceeds will be donated to Hope for Justice and Reclaim 13 (both are frontrunners in fighting human trafficking both globally and locally). Some alarming facts about human trafficking:
     
Over one million children have been exploited in the global commercial sex trade. 
    
There are approximately 20 to 30 million slaves today. 
    
Over 14,000 people are trafficked into the U.S. each year.

If you are unable to join us on race day for the 5k run/walk, there is an opportunity to still donate towards the cause either through the "Donate" tab to the right or in person at Second Place Church. There is also an option, as someone who will participate in the 5k, to set up a fundraising team or act as an individual fundraiser to raise donations as well. During registration there is a simple process to do so.

All those who register is entitled to an event T-shirt so for those willing to donate $30 or more is encouraged to still register even if they cannot participate.
