Running for Freedom in Columbus

We are excited to announce a new program of Free To Run Foundation, supporting two of our Columbus charity partners in addition to our own initiatives for education and prevention in southwest and central Ohio. Team Free To Run is a marathon/half marathon fundraising team formed for the purpose of highlighting the tragedy of human trafficking that is occurring all over the world, but also to bring a message of hope as we work to empower new abolitionists and fund strategic prevention initiatives. Our spotlight event for 2015 is the Columbus Marathon & 1/2 Marathon on October 18, 2015. Free To Run will be exhibiting at the expo the two days before the race, and at the post-race Celebration Village to engage participants and their friends and family on this critical human rights issue.

Also, we are thrilled and appreciative that our goodwill ambassador Juli Accurso will be coming to Columbus to run the half marathon for Team Free To Run. Juli will be in the middle of a busy fall racing season, but she didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity to run for freedom in her home state of Ohio.

Juli is Determined to End Slavery.
