Dallas runs for a cause

March 17, 2012 by  

The 5K Run for Human Rights, organised by the Human Rights Initiative, is set for Saturday, March 24 at Bachman Lake Park in Dallas for the second year in a row. The event is the same day as the International Day for the Right to Truth, a day dedicated by the United Nations to honor the memories of the victims of human rights violations, and to promote truth and justice.

Anyone interested in participating can still sign up for a small late fee on the Run for Human Rights website. Volunteers can also sign up to help set up, cheer on the runners at periodic running aid/cheer stations, work the walk-up registration tables, or clean up afterwards.

Rexanna’s Foundation for Fighting Lung Cancer will also be hosting their Run for a Purpose event on the 24th at Cedar Hill High School. There will be medals for top male and female runners in different age categories, and various raffles throughout the day. Participants and volunteers can sign up on the Run for a Purpose website.

Printing services are sure to be in demand leading up to the runs, as banner printing, poster printing and flyer printing are all great ways to promote the events and awareness for their respective causes. Printed t-shirts are also available for participants at each event.

The Run for Human Rights will begin at 8:30 in the morning, while the Run for a Purpose will start later in the evening, so it will definitely be possible for those with the endurance to participate in both events.
