By registering for the race you are participating in amplifying the voice of your community saying "NO MORE". The reality is that kids are being trafficked and exploited from right here in the United States, in Knoxville, in their schools, and even in their homes. By participating in this race, you are taking an active step to stand up for the vulnerable, educate yourself, and through awareness, prevent exploitation from becoming apart of another child's story.
If you are already registered, take the next step by signing up to become a fundraiser and take your advocacy even further.
