Take action as a Freedom Fighter in the 5th annual Action169 Freedom Race 5k 10k to end commercial sexual exploitation, which includes sex trafficking. Freedom Race 5k 10k gives you the opportunity to live as a modern day abolitionist.

Take action and run the race to fight exploitation one step at a time.

Professionally timed by Anderson Race Management, the race raises awareness and funds to combat the realities of this modern day injustice in specific ways. Representatives from businesses, as well as various sponsors work together to achieve the cultural heart-level change required to end exploitation and decrease related vulnerabilities such as problematic substance use.

100% of the proceeds go towards the ongoing prevention, intervention and direct restoration services provided by Action169, a Minnesota, faith-based organization that also supports and empowers other survivor-led and informed organizations domestically. This year, not only is Action169 celebrating five years of Freedom Fighters like you running the race, but the organization is also celebrating five years as a recognized organization on the front-lines of this justice movement.

We are believing for an additional $5,000 in race donations to go towards direct restoration services offered for women 18+. Raise support by raising funds for your run.
