Getting Started

Invite Financial Sponsors
Call, text, or email your friends and family and ask them if they would sponsor you for the race! Challenge them to give $5, $10, or $X per mile you run or walk. Every dollar raised will help rescue people who are trapped in slavery and violence. As you’re asking them, be sure to tell them why you’re running and care so much about ending slavery.

Challenge Others to Race on Your Social Channels
Invite your friends and family to join the race by extending a personal invite on your social channels. Be sure to tag IJM in your posts and use the #IJMRaceToRescue.

Say Hi!

If this is your first time here, take a moment to introduce yourself. What are you doing for the race, where are you doing it, and why are you racing to rescue?
