Event description


Event: 5K & 1-Mile Run/Walk

Host: The Aruna Project, a US non-profit dedicated to freeing, empowering, and employing sexually enslaved women in India.

Why Run or Walk? Run or walk for an enslaved woman by name whom the Aruna Project staff personally know and are working to free from the brothels. Thanks to local race sponsors covering race expenses, 100 percent of registration fees and donations go to bring and sustain freedom to women in desperate need of new beginnings.

Race Giveaways: Each race participant will receive a t-shirt, postrace refreshments, and an athletic drawstring backpack made by free Aruna Artisans. Each finisher will also receive a 2019 race medal. Sign up by April 25 to be guaranteed a t-shirt!


Fee: One-hundred percent goes to free, empower, and employ!

Are walkers welcome?

Of course! Whether walking or running, we are all out there for the same goal -- to raise funds to help bring freedom to the sexually enslaved.

Are dogs welcome?

Yes! Our furry, four-legged friends are welcome on the race course as long as they remain on leashes and their owners clean up after them.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Nope! As long you can cover the distance, we welcome all ages to participate. Parents are welcome to push kids in strollers too.

Can I update my registration information?

We all make mistakes and things change. So yes, you can update your registration information.

Is my registration fee transferrable?

Unfortunately, no. But if you cannot join us for the race, we will still make every effort to ensure you get your race giveaway items. Contact Jen at jen@lwchurch.com to make arrangements to pick them up.

And the good news is 100% of your registration fee goes directly towards the cause of freeing, empowering, and employing enslaved women. So even if you can't join us, your money will still make an impact.

Is it okay if the name on my registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Unfortunately, no. We need all registrations to match the person who attends the race for timing and legal purposes.
