Arise Global is hosting their first hope-to-be annual 5K Fun Run! Arise global is a certified 501(c)3 organizaton based out of Galveston County and currently operating in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to combat the injustices of child prostitution and assist vulnerable widows. For more information about what we do, please visit our website at

In the last year, Arise Global has operated a refuge center that allows girls <17 years old to experience a safe, loving atmosphere and build relationship with our local team. Through building relationship, girls are willingly transitioned into an in-home program called Addis Oikos or "New Family" to be cared for by widowed "Mamas" while going through a restoration program. 

The Arise Global 5k + 1K Fun Runs is one way we are hoping to raise funds in order to continue operating our current projects

If you cannot attend the race, but would like to support Arise Global financially, please visit this link. Thank you!
