_The 2022 Run For Her Life 5K/Half Marathon:
This is the second annual \"Run For Her Life\" virtual/in-person 5K and Half-Marathon! The Phoenix Phase Initiative is an Iowa-based non-profit dedicated to helping women who have been sexually trafficked around the world. These women are rarely given a chance to escape and, when they do get the chance, they RUN for it! The Phoenix Phase Initiative is there so they have a place to run to where they can be accepted, receive counseling, and learn job skills so they can break the cycle and create new lives for themselves. Help us help them by RUNNING with them toward freedom, restoration, and a life free of pain and fear! To be guaranteed a shirt and bag, PLEASE sign up by Monday, April 18, 2022. Please note: Runners/walkers who sign up after April 18, 2022 WILL receive a shirt, medal, and bag, but they will likely NOT be available the day before or the day of the race! They will be made after May 7 and distributed as soon as possible. Every in-person participant will receive a FREE drink ticket to Gezellig Brewing Company (juice and soda available as well)!
Most of this course will be located on bike paths/running trails around Newton or on side streets. This will be an open course, but there will be police presence and volunteers directing traffic at the major intersections. Please follow all traffic laws!
