5. YOU DID IT!!!
Congratulations! By running in the Run 4 Their Lives Knoxville- Virtual 5K, you have joined the team in becoming an advocate for preventing human trafficking! Remember that the more you share about your virtual run, the more you can be part of spreading awareness of this modern day form of slavery!
What is the Run 4 Their Lives Knoxville Virtual 5k?
To practice social distancing and protect our community while still being a voice for the voiceless, on January 30th at 9am we will Run 4 Their lives but from our own locations! You can walk, run, or even hop on the treadmill to bring freedom to children who are at risk and vulnerable to human trafficking in our own community!
Why run a virtual 5k? Because there are still victims all around us.
In the midst of this chaos in our world, we still feel called to use our platform to advocate for victims of trafficking because they are still being sexually exploited, and we won't stop fighting for their freedom.
During COVID-19 we have seen an uptick in human trafficking and sexual exploitation. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children reported experiencing a 90.46% increase in CyberTipline reports between January-June 2020 versus the same time period in 2019.
Our Run 4 Their Lives 5k races 1) raise awareness and 2) raises financial support for our partner organizations on the frontlines, like Street Hope right here in Tennessee! The proceeds of the event help fight human trafficking and give victims of this injustice the support they need to be FREE and provide prevention education to YOUR community.
How do I sign up for the virtual race?
To register for the virtual race, visit www.freedom424.org/knox. Registration is the same as before, except now you can run from anywhere! This event is for kids and adults of all ages! Invite your friends and family to sign up to run/walk with you!
How do I post my results?
Even though we are practicing social distancing we would still love for you to post your time and share with us that you finished the 5k! Visit our blog to see step by step instructions on posting your results.
Some of your questions are not answered?
We know you may have more questions, and we have more details to come! Monitor your email and we will send updates and more detailed information about the event soon. Or reach out to email@example.com!
Stay well, keep praying, and let's join together as a community to fight this injustice from our streets (or treadmills). Register to run/walk here!
