The Story

EVENT DATE: Feb 24, 2018

Across the world, today, millions languish in sexual slavery. They are more than statistics; they are individuals, with hopes and fears, dreams and doubts. Apart from someone stepping into their need, young women like Reshma will never be free.

 

Be A Part of Our Freedom Story

When you run or walk in the Chico Aruna Run, you run for a specific enslaved woman by name, like Reshma. You run to raise awareness of her need, to raise funds to secure her freedom through outreach programs, and to sustain her freedom through full time employment.

 

$25 = 25 New Futures

If each 2018 Aruna Run participant raises $25, it can enable us to free, empower, and employ 25 women over the next year. That is a powerful, life-changing story to be a part of! 

 

So we encourage you to magnify the impact of your race participation by committing to raising at least $25. You can raise funds as an individual or create or join a team to get your friends, family, and co-workers in on the action. Challenging other teams to see who can raise the most funds is always a fun way to insert a little friendly competition into the mix.

There is Strength in our Freedom

The impact of your fundraisers is life-changing for the women we serve. Women like Priya who survived years of horrific abuse are discovering enjoyment and happiness in their new lives with Aruna.
