Race to stop traffick 5k and Fun Run
Runners, walkers, and defenders of exploited children everywhere...come join us as we “Race to Stop Traffick
at the Terrace in Westlake, Texas. All proceeds from this event will directly benefit Operation Underground Railroad (www.OURrescue.org), a non-profit organization whose mission is to rescue and rehabilitate children sold into sex slavery in the U.S. and around the world. There will be a 1-Mile Fun Run as well as an officially timed 5k race. Participants, including families and kids, are welcome to take part in finish line festivities such as a Halloween costume contest, carnival games, face painting, live music, and a raffle booth. The course will begin at the Terrace business complex in the city of Westlake and continue along a winding course through lush greenery and some of the nicest homes in the Metroplex. Disposable timing chips will be provided by Chip-2-Chip Race Timing. T-shirts will be given to every participant and prizes awarded to the top finishers in each category.
Virtual 5k Participants:
For modern day “Abolitionists” who want to participate in O.U.R. child liberation efforts, but who aren't local, you can participate virtually! As a virtual runner you will choose a 5k course on your own and run it in support of Operation Underground Railroad. You can choose to complete your Virtual Run on when the Race to Stop Traffick will be held, or any other day in October that is convenient for you. Your race bib will be mailed to the address you provide. Optional t-shirts will be mailed after the race has taken place.
When you have completed your 5k Virtual Run, be sure to update your Facebook and Instagram status to let your friends and family know of your accomplishment! Add the hashtag: #racetostoptraffickdfw
