United Against Human Trafficking invites you to “Go the Distance to End Trafficking” in our first-ever Virtual 5K during the month of October! Children, teenagers, men, and women are exploited for sex and labor in our city every day. Funds raised during our 5K will help us fight to end human trafficking in our community and support UAHT programs that identify and connect victims and survivors to crucial services and care. (To learn more about us, please see www.uaht.org)
How does a virtual 5K work?
You can run, walk, skip, wheelchair, or push a stroller the 3.1 miles (5K) – your choice -- wherever you are! Run/walk with a few family members or friends at your favorite park or around your neighborhood -- or include our Virtual 5K in your daily workout on the treadmill at home!
Want to take a scenic route? Check out some of the best places to run/walk in central Houston and its suburbs at https://greatruns.com/location/houston-texas/. Or create your own personal course, at MapMyRun.com!
You have from Oct. 1 to Oct. 31 to complete our Virtual 5K.
But don’t worry about the time it takes to complete your run/walk! This is all for a great cause, so you're not required to prove your effort or time.
However, we would love to see photos of your 5K! So take selfies of you and your friends and family before, during, or at the end of the 5K and share them with us on the photo page of our race website! (Click on the PHOTO button at the top of this page.)
