Race for Freedom Virtual 5k Description
JVI partners with local organizations and global stakeholders to bring freedom, justice and restoration to men, women and children suffering from human trafficking and other forms of extreme injustice. We work in India, Nepal and China. Our vision is to see unjust communities transformed into communities ordered according to God’s standard of love where human rights and dignity are respected by all.
On December 1st, the eve of International Day for the Abolition of Slavery, our staff and partners in Mumbai, India will host their annual Race for Freedom 5k. This event is to raise awareness and funds for JVI's India programs that provide justice and restoration for victims of human trafficking.
In the U.S., we will join them in solidarity with a Virtual 5k!
What is a Virtual 5k?
A Virtual 5K is a race that you choose to complete where ever you would like. You can walk, run or use a treadmill. The beauty of a virtual 5K race is that you can run the race at your pace wherever you choose. Also, the best part is that 100% of the funds raised go directly to support our life changing programming!
