Event description

Description

Run To The End is a fun 5k run/walk to support efforts to end slavery and restore hope in Bangladesh.

In the last 3 years, Run To The End participants and sponsors have netted over $30,000 to help end human trafficking. 100% of our proceeds go to help fund girls who would otherwise be high risk of being trafficked in Bangladesh. Ahki's Place is holistic - providing clothes, food, shelter, and education for girls rescued until they graduate high school. This year, Run To The End aims to surpass last year's goal so that Ahki's Place can expand and reach even more girls in danger.

Shirts included with cost of registration if purchased by Sunday, May 21, 2017.

Further Description:

Each year 20,000-25,000 women and children from Bangladesh are trafficked into India for sexual exploitation.

Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you. James 1:27

Run to the End is a fundraiser to support those working in Bangladesh to rescue girls from unsafe situations and restore the hope and purpose into their lives that God created them for! Calvary Assembly and the Rochester community are running and walking towards an end to the injustice in Bangladesh and hope for a bright future! No matter your background – we would love to have you join us! Last year we raised over $10,000 due to generous donations from our community! This funded an entire year for the girls being rescued - and this year we aim to do the same!

We will be running/walking on Saturday, June 4th at 10am at Black Creek Park. A $20 registration fee includes a t-shirt. 100% of the proceeds from this event benefit Ahki’s Place – a home for girls in Bangladesh. Akhi’s Place can house up to twelve girls, and currently is home for seven girls all under the age of nine. These girls were rescued from brothels and are being raised in a safe and loving environment while being attending school and receiving additional training in English, computer skills, and Biblical teaching. They are blessed with three nutritious meals a day and opportunities for their future. Read more about Akhi’s Place here: www.singforjoysouthernasia.com. The more you know…the more excited we believe you will become! And heck, maybe that excitement will even make you run faster! J

Participate in Run to the End 2016 to help this ground-breaking work to continue and take steps towards making our world a safer, more hopeful one for the young girls in Bangladesh!
