An Interview with Juli Accurso

This is day 4 of our 12 Days of Freedom series, and today we are sharing a short video about our ambassador, Juli Accurso. Juli became a Free To Run goodwill ambassador on January 1, 2015, and she is looking forward to another year of raising awareness in the running community about human trafficking.

Introducing our new Free To Run Ambassador

We are excited to announce a new program for 2015, the Free To Run Ambassador program. FTR Ambassadors will help promote our initiatives and raise awareness about social justice issues. Ambassadors will usually be runners or other athletes, but we will also look for opportunities to engage with celebrities, musicians, and artists.JuliWR4H
