We welcome you to join us in the FIRST annual Beat the Traffick 5k! Our goal is to raise awareness for human trafficking, with all proceeds being donated to Free Network. Free Network is a “501c3 non-profit organization focused on confronting and combating all forms of human trafficking while empowering victims to survive and thrive in their communities.” (https://www.freenetwork.us)
It is estimated that internationally, there are 20-40 million people who fall victim to human trafficking, and less than 1% of these are identified and found. We ask you to join us to help with our cause and protect children here in the US and around the globe.
The 5K will be held at Lecanto High School in Lecanto, Florida. We will begin the run at 8:30am on Saturday, January 25, 2020. The race will be officially timed for our more experienced runners, but we also encourage novice runners and walkers to come support this cause!
