The Child Advocacy Center is partnering with a few local organizations – including Cumberland County’s W.O.R.T.H. Court, Fayetteville Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and Methodist University –to educate the public more about Human Trafficking Month in January. One of the planned initiatives is the inaugural “Be Their Voice 5k” on Jan. 28. The 5K is $25 to sign up.
The Fayetteville Running Club, another partnering nonprofit organization, is assisting and organizing this unique 5K on Methodist University’s campus, 5400 Ramsey St. The running club has planned a 5K route that will take runners through the scenic campus of Methodist University.
Pre-race packet pickup is scheduled for 4-8 p.m. on Jan. 27 at The Coffee Scene at the Prince Charles downtown. Race-day registration and packet pickup opens at 8 a.m. and closes at 8:45 a.m. on Jan. 28. The 5K will officially start at 9 a.m.
One beverage truck and one food truck will be onsite for race participants and spectators to enjoy. Vagabond Cafe will be providing hot beverages and bottled water for sale, and Fayetteville Pie Company will be offering savory and sweet breakfast pies for sale. Both businesses have agreed to donate a portion of their sales proceeds back to the Child Advocacy Center.
The max signees for the 5K will be capped at 200. The public may register for the race and find updates on runsignup.com.
