Twin Ports Aruna Run
Aruna is an international human rights non-profit dedicated to creating lifelong freedom for survivors of human trafficking. The Aruna Run Race Series is the catalyst of the freedom process with 100% of registration fees and additional donations going to help free enslaved women. So grab some friends, lace up your shoes, and let's run together for her freedom!
We know there are a lot of local 5Ks to choose from that benefit great causes. So why should you register for the Twin Ports Aruna Run?
- Direct impact. 100% of registration fees and additional donations go towards the Aruna Project's mission of freeing, employing, and empowering survivors of human trafficking. Our fundraising goal this year is $7,000. Race expenses are covered by the generosity of local business sponsors.
- Run for Her. You run or walk for an enslaved woman by name - a woman we personally know and are actively working to free. You'll select her name, write on your race bib, and you will literally run to help bring her freedom.
- Race swag crafted in freedom. Race swag items are hand-made by our Artisans, freed, in part, thanks to funds raised in previous Aruna Runs.
Together, we can provide these brave women with the opportunity to create their own bright new futures. Join the fight against human trafficking by registering today.
