1600 runners and walkers will participate
in the Free Them 5k on the streets of Shoreline

On Saturday, May 7, 2016, more than 1,600 people in our community will take a stand and help stop global human trafficking. Local people will have a global impact, doing their part to stop human trafficking and protect the most vulnerable.

The World Concern Free Them 5k, now in its 8th year, has raised more than half a million dollars in its history and ensured the protection of tens of thousands of vulnerable children and women living in the world’s poorest places.

Walkers / runners will start at 19303 Fremont Ave N, Shoreline 98133 on Saturday, May 7 at 9am.

Participants also increase awareness about human trafficking by running or walking a 5k route through Shoreline, starting at World Concern’s headquarters on the CRISTA Ministries campus.

Every year runners, walkers, families and friends join together to make a real impact — helping end a horrific crime that enslaves more than 35 million people around the world. Children, women, and men are often lured with promises of jobs or opportunities, only to be trapped into forced labor, prostitution, or modern-day slavery.

Donations to the Free Them 5k go toward educating the poorest and most vulnerable people, and increasing families’ opportunities to thrive. Join us!
