Ready to run? To end modern day slavery? Yes – human trafficking— in our country and around the world affects millions of lives. International Justice Mission (IJM) at TCU is dedicated to raising awareness about human trafficking and evoking action against it in the U.S. and abroad. Each year, our team, “Outrun Trafficking,” runs the Fort Worth Cowtown races (5k, 10k, half marathon, and full marathon). This year, we have the unique opportunity to raise money for IJM’s rescue operations in Delhi, India. With generosity from our family, friends, and neighbors, people will be brought out of slavery halfway across the world. In the past four years, we have raised upwards of $55,000 for anti-trafficking efforts in our local community, and we are excited to take the gifts and generosity from our friends and families to widen our circles of compassion to make a global impact.
Join us by being a team member for the 5k, 10k, half marathon, or marathon race. Why not challenge yourself physically by training for a race to help not only your own health, but those who have no voice? Running not your sport? Walk the 5k or commit to raising funds for organizations dedicated to ending modern-day sex trafficking and forced labor. In the grand scheme of things, training for a run or reaching into your pocketbook to help the estimated over 40 million enslaved men, women and children entails relatively little in comparison to the daily exploitation these innocent individuals endure. So what's the connection to TCU or Fort Worth? This is the beginning of a campus and community-wide effort to raise awareness! Ultimately, we want to invigorate the anti-human trafficking movement in our area, and that movement begins with YOU. So, take that first tangible step and join us – You and your friends/ family can be a part of the beginnings of a POSITIVE change for justice for all! Thank you for visiting our page!
