Unbound Chick-fil-A Light Up The Dark Virtual 5K

Sat March 28, 2020
End Human Trafficking. Ignite Hope.

The Unbound Chick-fil-A Light Up The Dark 5K is a fun, family-friendly “glow-in-the-dark” run to raise money and awareness for the anti-human trafficking work of Unbound. This annual event is fun for everyone, whether you’re a slow walker or a professional runner!

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Our first priority is the safety of you, your family and our community. We are looking to guidance from local community leaders and the CDC on safety precautions, quarantine restrictions and social distancing recommendations. Due to the COV-ID 19 pandemic, we are reinventing the Light Up The Dark 5K into a VIRTUAL race this year! We are excited to unify people from our community, around the nation, and throughout the globe who are seeking to end human trafficking. Over the next few weeks, we will release more interactive materials, graphics and information for you to LIGHT UP THE DARK as an individual or with your close friends and family during this time of social distancing. Thank you for your support of Unbound in Waco, Texas, and around the world.

How to do a virtual race:

  1. Register for the 5K or 1K. Thanks to our generous sponsors, 100% of registration fees goes to the fight against human trafficking.
  2. Pick your race crew. Following CDC recommendations, find a few friends and family members to be your race crew. 
  3. Map your race route. Find a local park, neighborhood or school and scout out your 1K or 5K race route. (There are lots of resources like MapMyRun.com online to help you map a route at the right distance). 
  4. Check out your digital runner packet, coming to your inbox soon!
  5. Get your race t-shirts! We'll send out info via email with pickup or mail options for race t-shirts.
  6. Make it a "glowing good" time by recruiting your team of cheerleaders, making posters and getting decked out in glow gear and face paint. 

We'll send out other ideas and info to race registrants between now and race day. Make sure you're registered so we can keep you up to date! Share your ideas with us by tagging @unboundwaco and using the hashtag #LightUpTheDark5K. 

Thank you for your participation and support during this challenging time. 

Thanks to Chick-fil-A Waco and our other amazing sponsors for making this event possible!
