About This Activity


Join LifeWay Network’s 2017 5K Race for Freedom!

Whether you want to run, jog, walk… or just cheer others on, please join us!

Race day registrations are welcome!

Registration: $40

Fundraising: We encourage all participants to set a goal of raising an additional $200 for LifeWay Network. When you register you’ll be given the opportunity to sign up as a fundraiser. A fundraising webpage will then be created for you, which you can use to promote your run and fundraising, and invite your friends to support you and make an online donation.


LifeWay Network celebrates 10 years of dedicated service in the anti-trafficking movement through education outreach combined with direct action for women who have been trafficked.

Your participation and fundraising help us to provide safe housing for survivors of human trafficking in the NYC area, as well as raising public awareness.

Join us in ending modern-day slavery and supporting freedom right here in NYC!

What will you get:

A stylin’ tech t-shirt

Race bib (we’ve got your number!)

Post race refreshments

A fun morning activity that’s good for your health and your spirit

That ‘feel-good’ feeling that you’re supporting LifeWay Network and the women survivors of human trafficking that we serve
