Run For Freedom 2010


Published on

Run For Freedom began in 2007, during the bicentenary of the abolition of the transatlantic slave trade. We raise awareness of people being trafficked into slavery but holding an annual run. Today it's estimated that over 12 MILLION people are trafficking into slavery worldwide, not just in the poorest countries like Haiti, but also the USA and UK. Many people aren't even aware that slavery is still even happening, trafficking is the second most lucrative criminal activity after drug trafficking! We cannot allow people's human rights to continue to be abused in this way.

  • Run For Freedom 5 km runs held in London and Bermuda and a 5km walk in Florida. For two years we held a poster competition to use the winning entry worldwide when promoting Run For Freedom and raising awareness of people trafficking. Encouraging ‘For Freedom’ events, Climb For Freedom consisted of climbing a wall enough times to reach the equivalent height of Mount Everest. Upon meeting music producer Charles Bailey, he was inspired to create two songs – Run For Freedom with signer Kedisha Charles and a remix of Amazing Grace with Kedisha and songwriter KC aka SirCredit; 50% of proceeds go directly to anti trafficking campaign MTV EXITDownload Run For Freedom tracks on iTunes UK: Run For Freedom tracks on iTunes Worldwide:
