We are excited to enter the third year of ‘Race for Hope’, a 5k race (USATF certified course #AL18051JE) and fun run benefiting The Rose Center in Mobile, Alabama. The Rose Center is a drop-in center for young women who are severely at risk for trafficking or already being exploited.

To find out more about what The Rose Center does, watch the following video, "Natalie's Story" - (time 6:27):

Crystal gives the harrowing story of Natalie Fisher, lured into the world sex trafficking, and how The Rose Center came alongside her family to help.

Race for Hope past:

In 2016, through the generosity of our patrons and about 500 runners, hundreds of pairs of shoes were placed on the feet of children in Honduras enabling them to attend school.   

In its second year, 2017, ‘Race for Hope’ grew by 15% with 579 runners participating. This remarkable support helped build 10 sturdy, durable homes for poverty stricken single Mothers, Widows and their children in India.
