Join DO & A Sista's Touch for our 7th annual charity, 5K, to raise Human Trafficking Awareness. We are excited to announce that the planning for the 7th annual 5k walk/run event is underway! Staying committed to social justice and our communal effort to stand in the fight against human trafficking in a bold way, the goal this year is to increase our engagement with an even larger community, increase registrations by a minimum of 10%, and reach a goal of over 200 registrations.  We look forward to seeing you on August 24th (Location: TBD) 

5K Your Ways - Virtual 5k Option: 

If you are not able to participate in the event in person, you can also show your support by participating virtually. With the virtual option, you get to choose where and how you participate in the 5k/3.25 mile distance. You can stay indoors (treadmill/stationary bike), or you can map out the distance in your neighborhood or another safe open space. You can run, walk, or ride a bike, whatever your pleasure; we just want you to share space with us to show solidarity in the effort to stop human trafficking. Once you finish your physical activity, enter your results so you can be added to our results board. You will have until September 23rd to enter your numbers. And just like that, you will have supported local nonprofit organizations that provide services to those impacted by human trafficking, supported AST programming, physically challenged yourself, and increased your knowledge on how you can help in the fight to stop human trafficking. 

The Cause -


As we continue our mission to cultivate Black Excellence through the inspiration of African-American women, it is important that we also do the work to ensure our children are healthy and whole. Taking on the role of advocate in the community, this civic engagement event provides us the opportunity to assist in the efforts of mitigating the perils of human trafficking, which is, unfortunately, impacting the African-American community in the Oakland/Bay Area.

The We Run Oakland: For Our Children series is an annual family/community event designed to focus on our collective responsibility to STOP human trafficking. Through the partnerships of local organizations, the main goal is to bridge the gap between community, resources, and self-care. We hope you will join us in our effort to educate the community in understanding the vastness of this epidemic on a local level and demonstrate how the collective can make incremental changes to achieve positive outcomes.
