9:00 a.m.
Race Starts in the Student Life Center Parking Lot
To register: www.purereligion5k.com

Central church invites you to join us for our 5th annual Pure Religion 5K to promote awareness and fight against human trafficking. There are millions enslaved worldwide – more than at any other point in human history. After drug trafficking, human trafficking, or modern-day slavery, is the second largest criminal industry in the world. We can't imagine the horror of a 12-year-old girl being sold to a brothel and there are an estimated 100,000 minors in the United States alone trapped in sex trafficking. Please join with hundreds in the Charlotte community as we walk/run for freedom of those enslaved.

Early bird rates until February 28, 2015. 
T-shirt deadline is April 6, 2015.
Sponsors are needed for the 2015 race. Contact Brenda at brendal@centralchurchofgod.org
