6th Annual Free Them 5k to Stop Human Trafficking
It's back! The 6th annual "Free Them" 5k Fun Run/Walk to fight human trafficking returns on Saturday, May 10, 2014! Last year's event drew nearly 2,200 participants and raised $150,000 to protect women and children from trafficking. The event is a fun, tangible way to take a stand against one of the most horrific crimes of our generation. The "Free Them" 5k raises awareness and funds for World Concern's child trafficking prevention programs, which help protect the poor and vulnerable, providing opportunities for education and to earn income safely.

I'm not an athlete. Can I still participate?
Being an athlete is not a requirement. You'll have fun walking or jogging the race. It's also a great event for experienced runners.
What is Packet Pick-Up?
Packet Pick-Up is just another term for Check-In. At packet pick-up you will get your goodie bag, bib, and T-shirt.
We encourage you to take advantage of early packet pick-up at each race: May 8 and 9, 2014, at Campbell Nelson VW/Nissan in Shoreline.
What if it rains?
This is a rain or shine event. And it's in Seattle! But we will say, we've had beautiful weather the past few years of this event.
Can we bring dogs or strollers?
Yes, but we ask that you clean up after your dog and keep strollers toward the back of the group as it can get crowded.
Is it a timed race?
We have a clock available for participants to see, but we do encourage self-timing.
Can kids run?
Of course! This is a super-fun event for the whole family.
Can I take video or pictures?
Please do! And make sure you share them on all of our social media outlets!
Will there be food available?
Yes! We will have food available to purchase from a hip local food truck.
Is there anything for people to do while they are waiting for runners to finish?
Yes, we have plenty of activities going on for families and friends waiting for participants. You can also stay after the race and enjoy the activities.
If I can't attend, can I get a refund?
Yes, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a refund of your registration fee.
