SISN in the Run for Courage

Joining Elk Grove and Cameron Park at the event

Members of Soroptimist International of Sacramento North participated and collected donations for Run for Courage held in Folsom on Saturday September 27. The main purpose of this walk is to raise awareness of Human Trafficking and to raise funds to restore victims of human trafficking.

A few of our Soroptimist members walked in the 5K and the weather was beautiful.  Other members showed their support with sponsorships and donations.  There were about 5 different Soroptimist teams there on race day.  After the walk/run there were many vendors available to talk about their programs with a focus on human trafficking.

It was announced that next year the event would take on another name "Break Free" because they feel that they are more than just a run. 

Look for us again next year.  Go to http://Runforcourage.org for more information about their organization and their events.
