Participate in World Concern's 7th Annual Free Them 5K in Shoreline

Monday, March 30, 2015

Last year's event raised $167,000

1,500 Runner and Walkers will help stop Human Trafficking through the 7th Annual “Free Them” 5k on May 9, 2015  

On Saturday, May 9, 1500 advocates will take to the streets of Shoreline to protect vulnerable children and women from human trafficking at World Concern’s 7th Annual Free Them 5k. 

Participants will raise awareness and funds for this cause by running or walking the 5k route through Shoreline, beginning at World Concern’s headquarters on the CRISTA Ministries campus.

The event is a favorite for runners, walkers, and families in the Puget Sound region because it offers a fun, tangible way to make a difference in a problem that can otherwise seem overwhelming. 

Worldwide, an estimated 35 million men, women, and – most heartbreakingly – children, are trapped in modern slavery today (*2014 Global Slavery Index). Last year’s event raised $167,000 to support World Concern’s anti-trafficking projects in some of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia – a hub for sex tourism, trafficking, and slavery.

The event is expected to sell out in April, so those interested in getting involved in the fight against human trafficking should register now.
