On April 11, we will Run 4 Their Lives in a virtual setting!
How does a virtual 5k work?!
Register for the Run 4 Their Lives Lynchburg 5k. You can either run for free by becoming a fundraiser and raising $50 to help end human trafficking or you can pay the flat registration fee of $24. The Freedom 4/24 will send you a story of a human trafficking survivor you can run/walk for (visit the Raise Your Arm tab now to read the stories), and a race bib for the event. There will be a time to pick up your medals after the CDC ban is lifted. (more details to come)
2. PRINT YOUR BIB
Print off your Run 4 Their Lives Lynchburg Virtual 5k race bib and personalize. Pin it on your shirt before you leave to start your 5k!
3. RUN/ WALK
On Aprill 11th you run your race! You can walk, run, jog, hike or even hop on your treadmill. Track your run/walk on Garmin, Strava, Map My Run, or another platform. Or with a stopwatch on your phone and a piece of paper.
4. SUBMIT YOUR RESULTS
5. YOU DID IT!!!
Congratulations! By running in the Run 4 Their Lives Lynchburg- Virtual 5K, you have joined the team in becoming an advocate for ending human trafficking! Remember that the more you share about your virtual run, the more you can be part of spreading awareness of this modern day form of slavery!
What is the Run 4 Their Lives Lynchburg Virtual 5k?
To practice social distancing while still being a voice for the voiceless, on April 11th at 9am we will Run 4 Their lives but from our own locations! You can walk, run, or even hop on the treadmill to bring freedom to girls like Natasha, Nicole, and Priscilla—victims, but now survivors, of sexual exploitation.
Why run a virtual 5k? Because there are still victims all around us.
In the midst of this chaos in our world, we still feel called to use our platform to advocate for victims of trafficking because they are still being sexually exploited, and we won't stop fighting for their freedom.
Our Run 4 Their Lives 5k races 1) raise awareness and 2) raise financial support for our partner organizations on the frontlines. The proceeds of the event help fight human trafficking and give victims of this injustice the support they need to be FREE.
I have already registered. Now what?
If you have already registered for the event, your registration will roll over to our virtual event.
How do I sign up for the virtual race?
To register for the virtual race, visit www.freedom424.org/lyh. Registration is the same as before, except now you can run from anywhere! This event is for kids of all ages! Invite your friends and family to sign up to run/walk with you!
Will you still have the Family Night/Kids Run on April 10?
The family night/kids run on April 10 has been canceled; however, kids are encouraged to run on April 11 @ 9am!
Will I still receive my 2020 race t-shirt?
Due to the financial impact of having to move our event from a traditional event to a virtual event we are limiting our spending and making financial decisions with extreme caution. With that said, if you would like a Freedom 4/24 shirt from a prior year/ location we would be happy to provide that for you once the gathering restrictions have been lifted by the CDC and can be picked up at our Lynchburg, VA office location.
Some of your questions are not answered?
We know you may have more questions, and we have more details to come! Monitor your email and we will send updates and more detailed information about the event soon. Or reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Stay well, keep praying, and let's join together as a community to fight this injustice from our streets (or treadmills). Register to run/walk here!
