Join Salt & Light Coalition the weekend of November 18-20 for a VIRTUAL 5K to help end human trafficking in Chicago.

Your participation helps women trafficking survivors access resources to heal, and to develop the skills they need to pursue their career ambitions and secure meaningful employment in the workforce.

Meet us on Saturday, November 19 at 10:15 am for an in-person 5K run/walk starting at Oz Park, followed by an after party at Barcocina!

Or, participate in the virtual race by completing your 5K between Friday, November 18 - Sunday, November 20 at the time of your choice, from wherever you are.

Rally your tribe and run, walk or move your way through 5K!
