UnBound, a nonprofit fighting human trafficking and providing survivor support efforts, has scheduled its 2018 Light Up the Dark 5k run for Oct. 13, 2018. The fundraiser is a fun, family-friendly, glow-in-the-dark run to raise money and awareness for UnBound’s anti human-trafficking work in Tarrant County.
The annual event is for slow walkers and professional runners alike.
Runners will gather at TCU’s Frog Fountain before the run for face paint, bounce houses, music and more, and hang out afterward for a free concert and great food.
UnBound’s mission is to mobilize communities to fight human trafficking through prevention, professional trainings, and survivor advocacy. UnBound Fort Worth has been endorsed by the Governor’s Child Sex Trafficking Team as an advocate provider agency for Tarrant County. The organization provides 24/7 crisis response and ongoing case management, advocacy, and emotional support for trafficking survivors.
