April 1, 2014 (SEATTLE) – World Concern’s “Free Them” 5k returns to Seattle on Saturday, May 10, 2014, with a goal of preventing one of the most horrific crimes of our generation. The event, now in its sixth year, raises awareness and funds for World Concern’s anti-trafficking programs.

Last year, more than 2,000 runners and walkers raised over $150,000 to help protect vulnerable children and women from becoming victims of human trafficking by participating in the “Free Them” 5k.

Human trafficking is estimated to be the third largest criminal activity in the world, and more than 80% of trafficking victims are women and young girls. World Concern works to protect those vulnerable to modern-day slavery, sexual exploitation, and abuse in some of the poorest places in Southeast Asia and around the world.

Every $40 a participant raises or donates helps protect one child from becoming a victim. Donations provide trafficking awareness training for children and women at risk, as well as education, job skills, and business start-up kits so they can earn income safely.

Join the movement and make a difference at this year’s “Free Them” 5k, on Saturday, May 10, at 9 a.m. on the CRISTA Ministries campus, 19303 Fremont Ave. N., Shoreline, WA 98133.

Participants can register online at www.worldconcern.org/5k.

  • How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
  • After scrolling through Mandisa's Facebook profile, it's pretty easy to see that her week has been jam packed. It's no surprise with her new album, "Out of the Dark" releasing May 19th. Despite her busy days in New York, it does look like she's had a blast.
