5K For Freedom: A Run For Humanity

UMD Students Ending Slavery and Terps for New Horizons are partnering for the first ever *UMD 5K for Freedom: A Run for Humanity* this Sunday, April 2!

Attendance includes food (Ten Ren's Tea Time @ UMD!!), t-shirts (for the first 50 registrants), raffles, sunset pictures, and memorial candle boats while showing solidarity for the human right to pursue happiness!

The registration fee is $15, and all profits will be split between Students Ending Slavery and Terps for New Horizons to support human trafficking survivors and refugees assimilating into the U.S., respectively.

Check in/on-site registration will begin at 6 PM at the sundial on McKeldin, and the run will begin at 6:30 PM. The route will go around North Campus, and as we near sunset we will be offering photographs and candle boats to symbolize solidarity and hope.

Come out and run (or walk) for freedom and humanity!
