Run For A Reason


Run for a Reason

Run for a Reason is for passionate people like you who want to make a difference and change lives. Whether you are an experienced runner or just up for a fun weekend activity, we would like to invite you to help us prevent sex trafficking.

Why Run for a Reason? There are 2.5 million victims of human trafficking at any given time, and that 79% of them are in a situation of forced sexual exploitation. By registering for Run for a Reason you can raise funds for Free To Shine and help us empower with an education to prevent sex trafficking. All our runners aim to raise $300, which allows us to provide 15 visits from an anti-trafficking officer, 30 visits from an education officer or provide 6 months of total scholarship for a girl in our program.

Want to get involved? Register with your local city and start collecting sponsors! Get your friends and family to sign up and run with you! Your registration cost includes a Free To Shine team singlet, your City2Sea event participation fee and assistance fundraising from Free To Shine.

Once you register we will contact you with specific event details for Free to Shine runners. We look forward to meeting you, your friends and family on the track to making a difference!
