Pure Religion 5K to Help Stamp Out Human Trafficking
Saturday, April 22, 2017 at 9am
Located at the Central Church Charlotte Campus
5301 Sardis Rd., Charlotte, NC 28270
Central Church invites EVERYONE to join us for our 7th annual Pure Religion 5K to promote awareness and fight against human trafficking. There are millions enslaved worldwide – more than at any point in human history. After drug trafficking, human trafficking, or modern-day slavery, is the second-largest criminal industry in the world. Most can’t imagine the horror of a 12-year-old being sold, yet there are an estimated 100,000 minors trapped in sex trafficking in the United States alone. Please join with hundreds in the Charlotte community as we walk or run for freedom of those enslaved.
Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans & widows in their distress, & refusing to let the world corrupt you. - James 1:27
Highlights of the 5K:
• More than 1,000 runners/walkers
• Kids Zone with blow-ups
• Face painting
• Coffee Central food & drink
• Music, prizes and fun
All proceeds from this event go to organizations working to eradicate human trafficking in the Charlotte area and around the world.
