      Event: 5K Run/Walk Host: The Aruna Project, a US non-profit dedicated to freeing, empowering, and employing sexually enslaved women in India.  Why Run or Walk? Run or walk for an enslaved woman by name whom the Aruna Project staff personally know and are working to free from the brothels. Thanks to local race sponsors covering race expenses, 100 percent of registration fees and donations go to bring and sustain freedom to women in desperate need of new beginnings. Race Giveaways: Each race participant will receive an athletic drawstring backpack made by free Aruna Artisans, as well as a t-shirt. Each finisher will also receive a 2019 race medal. Sign up early to be guaranteed a t-shirt. Fee: One-hundred percent goes to free, empower, and employ!

Sponsors: A big thank you to our sponsors for funding the race, ensuring that 100% of the money raised from entry fees and donations will go to help the women we serve.  Race Host: The Champaign Aruna Run is organized locally by Christ Community Church. For questions about the run, volunteering, or becoming a sponsor, contact Keilin Jahnke at Refund Policy: No refunds.  FAQs Are walkers welcome? Of course! Whether walking or running, we are all out there for the same goal -- to raise funds to help bring freedom to the sexually enslaved. Are dogs welcome?  We love our furry, four-legged friends, but they are not permitted on the race course due to safety reasons. Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? Nope! As long you can cover the distance, we welcome all ages to participate. Parents are welcome to push kids in strollers too. Can I update my registration information? We all make mistakes and things change. So yes, you can update your registration information. Is my registration fee transferrable? Unfortunately, no. But if you cannot join us for the race, we will still make every effort to ensure you get your race giveaway items. Contact Keilin at to make arrangements to pick them up. And the good news is 100% of your registration fee goes directly towards the cause of freeing, empowering, and employing enslaved women. So even if you can't join us, your money will still make an impact. Is it okay if the name on my registration doesn't match the person who attends? Unfortunately, no. We need all registrations to match the person who attends the race for timing and legal purposes.
