Inaugural Race to Stop Traffick 5k & Fun Run; Sponsored by Operation Underground Railroad
Saturday, October 21
Runners, walkers, and defenders of exploited children everywhere, come join us as we “Race to Stop Traffick,” at the Terrace in Westlake. All proceeds from this event will directly benefit Operation Underground Railroad (www.OURrescue.org), a non-profit organization whose mission is to rescue and rehabilitate children sold into sex slavery in the U.S. and around the world. There will be a 1-Mile Fun Run as well as an officially timed 5k race. Participants, including families and kids, are welcome to take part in finish line festivities such as a Halloween costume contest, carnival games, face painting, live music, and a raffle booth. The course will begin at the Terrace business complex in the city of Westlake and continue along a winding course through lush greenery and some of the nicest homes in the Metroplex. Disposable timing chips will be provided by Chip-2-Chip Race Timing. T-shirts will be given to every participant and prizes awarded to the top finishers in each category.
