6th Annual VIRTUAL Run For Her Life 5k

Covid 19 has isolated, shut down, and destroyed community connections over the past year, but we refuse to let it do the same with our annual 5K.  Our annual 5K is more than a race and more than a fundraiser…it’s the community coming together to join the fight against human trafficking! It’s about people loving people!

This year, in order to love both our participants and those we run for well, we are making our annual 5K virtual! We are bringing our 5K to the community!  Our goal is for people to set up their own teams to run or walk with. Teams of competitive runners, students, families, church groups, business groups, animal lovers, or anyone that wants to come together for 3.1 miles of fun.  Each team will then receive a race kit complete with their own finish line and all the essentials to have a great time together!

This is where YOU come in. Become a race sponsor and help bring the community together! Market your materials in participants’ swag bags, receive social media recognition through our large fan base, and at a level 3 sponsorship have your business represented by a team! They’ll wear your logo on their race bibs, and you can provide any swag items you’d like them to have or wear that represent your business! They’ll give you a shout-out on their media pages and in their race pictures multiplying your business exposure.  Not only will our participants be running for those victimized by human trafficking…they’ll be letting the world know that YOU are a part of the fight as well!

To become a sponsor, complete the attached form and send your payment to Lighthouse for Life.

To become a team captain, complete the attached form and fill your team.
