On Saturday, September 7, Run Against Traffick kicks off at 9 a.m., sending runners down the shore of Diversey Harbor for an untimed race.

Race entry includes a commemorative item; race proceeds go to Traffick Free, a non-profit that aims to end human trafficking.

Traffick Free

During Traffick Free's annual 5k Run Against Traffick, participants trot along the shore of Diversey Harbor without once interfering with local traffic patterns. Instead, the run raises awareness of human trafficking, which the organization estimates affects 27 million people worldwide. Traffick Free focuses specifically on Chicago, but also hosts events and recommends actions that can combat trafficking on a national scale, from calling elected officials to flagging dubious Craigslist ads.

I have heard more and more about human trafficking lately and how present it still is today and it really struck a chord with me, and I'm all about running 5k's for causes that I actually believe in and feel good about donating to (I am a college student-so I try to be diligent with money-the little that I have :P ) So this was a perfect fit !! And the event itself was great, very positive! I am also a very big fan of the radio station that media sponsored it.. 90.1 FM Moody Radio :)

I had never heard of this run before the groupon came out and I'm really glad I did it. I did not realize what a large problem human trafficking is here in Cook County. The race was well organized and small so it was really nice. I really enjoyed the fact boards that taught you about human trafficking every mile or so. It was both a great run and really enlightening experience, bringing awareness to a growing problem
