It’s time to lace up your running shoes and pave the way to hope and freedom for children in Maryland! Join us for a 5k/10k or Family Fun Walk to raise awareness about human trafficking and fundraise for Araminta Freedom Initiative’s mission to end it. Gather your friends, family and colleagues to participate in this fun and family friendly event that demonstrates our whole community standing together against child trafficking.
