Description

Registration isn't available yet. Want to be notified when it opens? Send an email to alex.pence@gmail.com to be kept in-the-know!



Across the world, today, millions languish in sexual slavery. They are more than statistics; they are individuals, with hopes and fears, dreams and doubts. Apart from someone stepping into their need, young women like Reshma will never be free.

We run to raise awareness of her need, to raise funds to secure her freedom through outreach programs, and to sustain her freedom through full time employment. When you run or walk in an Aruna Run, you run for a specific woman by name, like Reshma. You run for her freedom.


Madison Start Line

Events: We're offering a 5K and 1-mile run/walk option.

Times: Both the 5K and 1-mile start at 9:00 am. Packet pickup and walk-up registration opens at 8:00 am.

Giveaways: Each Aruna Run participant will receive a t-shirt, coupons from our sponsors, postrace refreshments, and an Athletic Drawstring Backpack made by women who are now freed, empowered, and employed! Each finisher will also receive a 2018 Aruna Run finisher medal. Sign up early to guarantee t-shirt size and availability.

Teams: Teams are welcomed and encouraged. Team formation will occur at the end of registration with the options to create or join a team.

Fundraising: Fundraising is completely optional but highly impactful as 100% of funds raised go directly towards the cause of freeing, empowering, and employing. If each 2018 Aruna Run participant raises $25, it can enable us to free, empower, and employ 25 women over the next year! You will be able to set up a personal or team fundraising page at the end of registration.

Impact: Because of our generous sponsors offsetting the cost of the event, 100% of the money raised from entry fees and donations will go directly to help free, empower, and employ the women we serve.

Awards: Following the finish, we will be celebrating funds raised by awarding an appreciation gift to the individual and team who raised the most money for freedom. Awards will also be given to the top male and female overall race winners, as well as male and female winners of each age category.

Race Host: The Madison Aruna Run is organized locally by Alex Pence. For questions about the run, volunteering, or becoming a sponsor, contact Alex at alex.pence@gmail.com.

Donations: Donations can be made on the official Madison Aruna Run 2018 Fundraising Page. You can choose to make a general event donation or donate specifically to an individual's or team's fundraising campaign.

Refund Policy: No refunds.


FAQs

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 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 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 Alex Pence at alex.pence@gmail.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 ok 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.
