MADISON  ARUNA RUN  2019

When you run or walk in an Aruna Race, you run for a specific
enslaved woman by name, like Reshma. You run for her freedom.


One-hundred percent of participant registration fees and donations go to free, empower, and employ sexually enslaved women. 

Date: Saturday, October 5, 2019 

Events: 5K and 1-Mile

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 an enslaved woman by name whom the Aruna Project staff personally know and are 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 women in desperate need of new beginnings.

Location: Brittingham Park, Washington Ave, Madison, WI 53715

Times: Both races start at 10:00 a.m. Packet pick-up and walk-up registration opens at 9:00 a.m.

F.A.Q.

Are walkers welcome?

Of course! Whether walking or running, we are all out there for the same goal -- to raise funds to help bring freedom to the sexually enslaved.

Are dogs welcome?

As much as we love our furry, four-legged friends, they are not allowed to participate in the race.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Nope! As long you can cover the distance, we welcome all ages to participate. Parents are welcome to push kids in strollers too. A child being pushed in a stroller does not need to be registered for the race.
