"Run to Break the Chain"- 5k/10K/Half marathon is a community fundraiser for Operation Underground Railroad. The event will be held at Smith Park in Rexburg, ID on Saturday, September 23, 2017 and will be family and stroller friendly event.
Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) is an organization which helps to liberate children enslaved in the sex slave industry. Using cutting-edge computer technology and human intelligence, O.U.R. undercover teams of former CIA and Special Ops personnel go into the darkest corners of the world to help local law enforcement liberate enslaved children and dismantle the criminal networks that hold them captive. In just over two years, O.U.R. has directly liberated 693 children and arrested over 300 traffickers, in rescue missions across the globe.
It is our goal to support Operation Underground Railroad by hosting the third annual Run to Break the Chain 5K, 10K, and half marathon community fundraiser, with 100% of proceeds being donated to this deserving organization and cause. The event will be held at Smith Park in Rexburg and will be family and stroller friendly. We will have a live DJ, music, food, FREE massages for participants (courtesy of Rexburg College of Massage Therapy), and more! Please join us in our efforts to support this incredibly important cause!
