Reason to Run
Reason to Run is a fun 5K run/walk event to raise awareness about the injustices of human trafficking and to provide ways on how to get involved in the fight against it. Human trafficking is modern day slavery. Although slavery has existed throughout history, most people believe that it ended decades ago. But the truth is, there are more slaves in the world today than at any other point in history. Men, women and children are being exploited against their wills all across the globe with Houston being one of the hotspots in the US. Awareness is the first step in this fight. Reason to Run is a way for us to band together, learn more and start to make a difference! Early (online) registration will remain open until Nov. 21st at 5pm - $25.00 (plus processing fee). On-site registration on day of event begins at 7:30am - $30.00. Packet/T-shirt pickup is Nov 21st – Faith Family Church (East Lobby). (Event t-shirts are guaranteed to those registered by Nov 9th). There will also be fun races for the kids to participate in after the 5K while we are waiting for race results.
