Across the world, today, millions languish in sexual slavery. They are more than statistics; they are individuals, with hopes and fears, dreams and doubts.

We run to raise awareness of her need, to raise funds to secure her freedom through outreach programs, and to sustain her freedom through full time employment. When you run or walk in an Aruna Run, you run for a specific woman by name, like Reshma. You run for her freedom.

Events: We're offering a 5K and 1-mile run/walk option.

Location: Brittingham Park, 829 W Washington Ave, Madison, WI 53715

Fee: Early-bird registration of $25 until August 31. After August 31, registration is $30. Kids ages 6-17 are $15 until August 31, then $20 thereafter. Children 5 and under are free (do not receive a t-shirt). Register early to be guaranteed a t-shirt. One-hundred percent goes to free, empower, and employ!

Times: Both the 5K and 1-mile start at 9:00 am. Packet pickup and walk-up registration opens at 8:00 am.

Giveaways: Each Aruna Run participant will receive a t-shirt (except children 5 & under), coupons from our sponsors, postrace refreshments, and an Athletic Drawstring Backpack made by women who are now freed, empowered, and employed! Each finisher will also receive a 2018 Aruna Run finisher medal. Sign up early to guarantee t-shirt size and availability.

Teams: Teams are welcomed and encouraged. Team formation will occur at the end of registration with the options to create or join a team.

Awards: Following the finish, we will be celebrating funds raised by awarding an appreciation gift to the individual and team who raised the most money for freedom. Awards will also be given to the top male and female overall race winners, as well as male and female winners of each age category.

Sponsors: A big thank you to our generous sponsors for offsetting the cost of the event, ensuring that 100% of the money raised from entry fees and donations will go directly to help free, empower, and employ the women we serve.

Race Host: The Madison Aruna Run is organized locally by Alex Pence. For questions about the run, volunteering, or becoming a sponsor, contact Alex at
