Pure Religion 5K

Sat., April 25 | Race starts at 9am - please arrive by 8am
Central Church Charlotte Campus

We are celebrating our tenth year of hosting Pure Religion 5K! Consider the following stats:

  • Between  2011 and 2019, more than 7,000 people have participated in the 5K, an average of 840 per year. 
  • Pure Religion 5K has raised and donated more than $500,000 to help stamp out human trafficking.
  • Anti-trafficking groups supported in past nine years include: Compassion to Act, Fashion & Compassion, Justice Ministries, On Eagles Wings, Present Age Ministries, Project Rescue, PureHope, Redeeming Joy, Renew Women’s Home, Samaritan’s Purse, World Relief and others.

It's easy for all of us to make a difference in the lives of those impacted by human trafficking.

All you have to do is put on a pair of tennis shoes, grab a family member or friend and get ready to walk or run 3.1 miles at your own speed.  It doesn’t matter if you are pushing a stroller, walking with a cane or the first one over the finish line, we guarantee that you will enjoy the experience.  If you really have a kick in your step you could even win some cash! 

Past sponsors, we would love your help again and we welcome new ones.  In addition to promoting a good cause, your business can receive promotion based on sponsorship levels. To mark our 10th anniversary, we have a special sponsorship level this year. A $10,000 sponsorship level includes a plaque and special recognition at the race, ten individual race registrations and T-shirts, your business logo on the back of the shirt, a business website hyperlink on the race event web page, and advertising on the day of the race. Additional sponsorship levels are available: Platinum ($5,000), Gold ($1,000), Silver ($500) or Bronze ($250). Email brendal@centralnc.org for details. 

Runners/walkers can register as individuals, or teams, with registration including a Pure Religion T-shirt and finisher medal.
