NEW THIS YEAR - CHARITY PARTNER -Advocating Opportunity

Make a direction donation when registering online or setup a fundraiser page.

Advocating Opportunity (AO) is unique among legal service providers for trafficked and exploited persons. We are only one of three programs in the country which provide comprehensive, holistic, trauma-responsive legal services to men and women, minors and adults, and U.S. Citizens and foreign-born persons who have experienced sex or labor trafficking.  We also provide family support to ensure that trafficked and exploited persons have a stable home environment.  Most legal service providers across the U.S. provide limited legal services or work with a limited population, such as working only with minors or adults, only with women, only foreign-born trafficked and exploited persons, or only with those who experienced sex or labor trafficking.  AO is different.



Start and finish at the school, Flat, fast and DARK! It is recommended that you wear light-colored or reflective clothing. As this is NEW YEAR”S EVE, formal running attire is also encouraged! Registration and restrooms are inside the nice warm school.
