The Aruna Project creates lifelong freedom through employment marked by holistic care to sexually enslaved women. By combining the best of non-profit and for-profit, we envision a day when every young woman is free to choose her own adventure.
One-hundred percent of participant registration fees and donations go to free, empower, and employ sexually enslaved women.
Date: Saturday, April 18, 2020
Location: University of Kentucky, Stoll Field, 160 Avenue of Champions, Lexington, KY 40502
Host: The Aruna Project, a US non-profit dedicated to freeing, empowering, and employing sexually enslaved women in India.
Why Run or Walk? Run or walk for Jyoti, an enslaved woman the Aruna Project staff personally knows and is working to free from the brothels. Thanks to local race sponsors covering race expenses, 100 percent of registration fees and donations go to bring and sustain freedom to Jyoti and other women in desperate need of new beginnings.
Race Giveaways: All giveaway items included in the registration fee are hand-made by Aruna Artisans, freed thanks to funds raised in previous Aruna Runs. Each race participant receives an athletic drawstring backpack and choice of an Aruna Run exclusive headband or sweat towel. Race t-shirts (not made by the women) are available for an additional $7.50 during online registration.
Start Times: Packet pick-up and walk-up registration opens at 8:00 a.m. Race starts at 9:00 a.m.
