Virtual Race Recap


The 2014 Resolve to End Slavery Virtual 5k race took place from January 1, 2014 to February 1, 2014. Since the World Race for Hope began several years ago, there have always been virtual participants registered for our races, but this was the first year that we focused on expanding the virtual race.
