California Against Slavery - Midway District: $15 for Registration for Move to Stop Modern Day Slavery 5K Walkathon or Race from California Against Slavery ($40 Value)

Running was popular in Europe long before it caught on in America, which is why most races are measured in kilometers instead of miles and why most of the Pilgrims were eaten by bears. Race to the top of the food chain with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one registration for the Move to Stop Modern Day Slavery 5K walkathon or competitive race, presented by California Against Slavery (a $40 value). The nonprofit event takes place on Sunday, August 28 in Harbor Island Park. Check-in starts at 7:30 a.m.

Participants in the Move to Stop Modern Day Slavery Walkathon stroll or run through a scenic 5-kilometer course to raise funds for California Against Slavery’s fight to end human trafficking in the state. The fundraising ramble kicks off at 7:30 a.m., when racers and walkers can register their lower backs with a walkathon t-shirt and a number for easy identification by mobile high-five squads. At 8:30 a.m., competitive racers launch themselves onto the 5K course, followed 15 minutes later by walkers, who ramble through bayside parkland at a more leisurely pace. At the end of the course, both groups can collect snacks and recount tales of derring-do on the course before settling in to absorb speeches from CAS executive director Daphne Phung, human-trafficking survivor Nikki Junker, and police association president Brian Marvel. The walkathon will also present prizes to the top individual and team fundraisers.

California Against Slavery endeavors to enact strong state laws to increase the penalties of human trafficking, a crime currently exploiting more than 100,000 American minors. Its antitrafficking ballot initiative aims to lengthen prison sentences and boost fines for sex traffickers, as well as confronting recalcitrant state lawmakers with an army of angry ballot boxes.
