4th Annual Wesley Waddle 10K/5K
Are You Ready to Race for the END of Modern Slavery? The 4th Annual Wesley Waddle 10K/5K will take place on April 21, 2018, with a shotgun start at 8am. Online and paper registration will open on January 1, 2018. Asbury students, staff, faculty, and alumni receive a discounted entry fee of $15 for the 5K and $20 for the 10K; entry free includes a race shirt, bagel breakfast, and entry into all door prizes.
This year, we are excited to partner with the globally renowned END IT movement, a coalition of the leading organizations in the world, to shine a light on slavery and fight for freedom. Our charitable donations will be given to Refuge for Women, a nationally recognized organization that provides long-term care for women who have escaped human trafficking. Refuge for Women offers safe houses locally and nationally and equips each woman to complete their program with a vision for the future.
