We're so sorry we've been missing from the blogosphere for so long! But not to worry - it's only because we're so hard at work making the Race For Freedom such an amazing event! Here are the most recent developments:
First, we'd like to recognize a significant sponsor and partner in the movement to end human trafficking in Wichita. The wonderful staff at KMUW, your local source for National Public Radio, has teamed up with Race For Freedom and ICT S.O.S. to promote the race, and even has a team of ten participating!
Second, we've added fun family activities to the day! I can't tell you everything, but I can see face painting, balloon animals, and other fun things headed their way! It's never too late to sign up for the Family Fun Run - a gentle, relaxing way to support our cause and enjoy exercise with the whole family.
Not to worry - we won't be gone as long this time. There's just too much to share!!
Small Business Sponsorship!
Attention small business owners!!! We at Race For Freedom know that booth prices can sometimes keep you from sponsoring local races. But not anymore!!
For $30, your small business, organization, or nonprofit can "rent" a very special "booth" at the Race For Freedom! You will have one Port-A-Potty (yes, we said Port-A-Potty) to decorate as you choose - we're not holding you back! Past "booths" have had a butler with hand sanitizer, fresh towels, and mints. Some have handed out samples of their tasty treats. One booth even had a red carpet leading to the entrance.
For $30, a little work, and a lot of creativity, you could have the undivided attention of one person at a time - quite the opportunity to make an impression!For more information, or to request booth space, click on this link: Port-A-Potty Sponsorship

And please, share this opportunity with friends and colleagues!
I am SO excited about all the people who want to know more about how they can help stop human trafficking in Wichita! We launched this web site and our Facebook page yesterday afternoon, and we have over 100 likes ALREADY and we have sold 3 tickets! People are TALKING!!!
Our (extremely lofty) goal for this race is 1500 participants and raising a net profit of $30,000. A typical first-year race in this area will have around 400 participants and maybe raise $2,000 or $3,000... so our goal is pretty GRAND!!! It's going to take a lot of preparation and publicity - but it is SO worth it for the girls it will benefit who are enslaved in human trafficking. This money raised will go towards a (short-term) goal of overnight housing for the girls who are rescued (who are normally placed in jail due to the lack of adequate housing). Our long-term goal is to have a local residential facility in the surrounding rural area of Wichita for these women where they can go for 6 months to a year to be restored to life and reintegrated into society.
I am working today on a brochure for the race and I'm brainstorming potential sponsors! If you have ideas, let us know via the "Contact" page above, or email me at Liz@race4freedom.com And spread the news on Facebook and Twitter!
