Join us for a 5k Night race and 1 mile walk to IllumaNight Human Trafficking and bring awareness to the reality of it in our community. This year we have made the change from Run For Her Freedom in previous years to Run For Their Freedom, bringing recognition that Human Trafficking is not a respector of gender, age, race or socio-economic status. This year, we Run For THEIR Freedom!
The 4th Annual Run For Their Freedom is hosted by WillowBend Farms, Inc, a local 501c3 organization which supports survivors of Human Trafficking, raises awareness, and provides education to our community, schools, businesses, and churches. Proceeds go directly to survivor support services, education, and prevention. As a result of previous years' race success, WillowBend served over 199 Survivors in 2020.
This event will be held on Saturday October 16, at Greenway Park in Cleveland, Tennessee. Beginning at dusk, participants are encouraged to light up the night with their outfits, to be creative, have fun, and join us in supporting Human Trafficking Survivors!
As you cross the finish line, awards for race groups, costume creativity, and a special guest speaker will be followed by worship and a stunningly unforgettable candlelight ceremony you will not want to miss!
Come - Join us in bringing light to the darkness to End Human Trafficking. Come - Shine your light!
