About Courage Run
Come… Run for Courage™. Courage Run is a division of Courage Worldwide. This multi-city 5K/10K annual race series is a benefit for Courage House — homes for minor girls rescued out of sex trafficking. Come run for Courage!
The first annual race began with a group of volunteers in Elk Grove, CA in 2009 (The Elk Grove Turkey Trot) and now we have expanded to Granite Bay as well, with plans to continue to expand all over the world. From the beginning, our vision has been to have runs in multiple cities. If you are interested in bringing one to your city, please contact us! email@example.com
We are pleased to have a professional race director for our Courage Runs who is certified with the Road Runners Club of America. She has great experience both in running races and in directing them. The quality that she brings to all our runs is outstanding, and we look forward to more success with our Courage Runs!
Courage House is not just a structure or building, a program or approach; it is a place where hope is given, healing is offered, and lives are restored. We believe it is never too late for an individual—especially a child—to be rescued and lovingly restored to a life filled with hope, purpose, and love. Since 2011, Courage Houses have been open in Northern California and Tanzania, Africa and our goal is to expand and open a home in every city around the world that needs a one. Hundreds of thousands of girls across the U.S., and millions around the world, need a safe place to call home and someone to call them family. Many of the girls are runaways because of their life of abuse and sexual exploitation. That is why we RUN…so they don’t have to! Come run for courage with us! Find out more HERE
Courage Run is a family friendly event and includes a 1/4 mile kids fun run. Our desire is that you experience a fun, high-quality race as you partner with us in the fight against trafficking by bringing more girls home to Courage House.
If you would like to volunteer on race day, or be a part of our race committee (who meets monthly) please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*We value community support and will be giving 10% of the profits to partner organizations in every city where there is a Courage Run.
