WELCOME to the 2ND ANNUAL
RUN FOR THEIR LIVES 5K WALK/RUN!
and KID's DASH
presented by Second Place Church of Monee, IL!
The event will be held Saturday, September 26th at 8:00am at Firemen's Park in Monee, IL. This 5k run/walk will be a family friendly event to raise further awareness of those affected by human trafficking as well as bring the community together. The KID's DASH is for all children between the ages of 6 and 12 and will be a 300 meter run at Firemen's park where all the kid participants will receive an one of a kind temporary tatto acknowledging their efforts in the ultimate fight against human trafficking. The KID's DASH is free for those children who participate. 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.
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. 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.
The starting and finish lines will be located next to Firemen's Park in Monee, Il where there will be a check in table to pick up your complimentary event T-shirt and race number with each confirmed registration. At the conclusion of the race there will be refreshments and a snack for all of those who participated.
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 this web page 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 entited to an event T-shirt so for those willing to donate $30 or more is encouraged to still register even if they cannot participate in the run/walk yet can be present during the race to cheer or for the after race events.
