About This Activity

The Unbound Light Up The Dark 5K presented by Chick-fil-A - Baylor University on 7th Street is a fun, family-friendly “glow-in-the-dark” run to raise money and awareness for the anti-human trafficking work of Unbound.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Our first priority is the safety of you, your family and our community. We are looking to guidance from local community leaders and the CDC on safety precautions, quarantine restrictions and social distancing recommendations. Thank you for your support of Unbound in Waco, Texas, and around the world.

We'll send out other info and ways to join in the fun to race registrants between now and race day. Make sure you're registered so we can keep you up to date! Share your ideas with us by tagging @unboundwaco, @unboundnow and using the hashtag #LightUpTheDark5K.
