Community is a key foundation of Lighthouse for Life. Not only do we rely on our community partnerships, but we want to do all we can to help our communities grow in their understanding of Human Trafficking and the role they can have against it.
Throughout the year, we host a variety of both fund-raising and awareness events that we would love for you to join. Many of our events are put on by Lighthouse for Life, however, at times we partner with others as well. If you have an event you’d like us to be a guest, please contact us!

WHAT IS THE GREAT INFLATABLE RACE?
The Great Inflatable Race is a fun run with inflatable obstacles spread throughout the running course. You and your friends will feel like kids again as you jump, dive and bounce on our custom-designed inflatables. Get fit, support a good cause and create epic memories that will last you a lifetime!
Register using code LIGHTHOUSE2019 to save money AND have a part of your registration donated to Lighthouse For Life!!!
You'll start the race climbing one of our inflatables and then race your friends and family to the next inflatable obstacle. This bouncy course contains between 8-10 massive inflatables that will bounce, bump and slide you all over the place! You'll finish the race with a perfect photo op on our final inflatable, and after a nice refreshing drink, you can check out our awesome Inflatable Village. Check out our Inflatable Village page to see what the after party is all about!
Our inflatables are one of a kind, and your whole family will enjoy this amazing run. Bring your kids and feel like a kid again yourself. Join us at The Great Inflatable Race!
