Read the story behind Finish for Hope 5K
Finish for Hope 5K is Second Life Tennessee’s first annual 5K. The idea was formed out of the desire to cultivate community within the city of Chattanooga, and to invite businesses and families into the realm of advocacy we promote. We love this city. We get to work alongside courageous and innovative businesspeople who hold the same values of excellence and respect as we do. This event will provide the opportunity to establish more partnerships and future advocates. We are excited to see these partnerships continue to develop into an effective joint-effort that will serve our survivors well.
One of the best methods to fighting this injustice, is making as many people aware of their importance in this fight. We all have a part to play. The word together means “in cooperation; with united action; conjointly.” Our goal is to see all organizations as moving parts to this cause. We can take on this fight together.
We want runners of this race to know that the single most important thing a survivor needs is not a tangible need. It is hope. It is belief. Belief in themselves. Belief that they are supported by their community.
The feeling of accomplishment, like finishing a race, isn’t tangible. It is rewarding and encouraging. This is our motivation. Every survivor deserves to know that hope is at work on their behalf. Opportunity is available. Until everyone is made aware that freedom is not for sale, Hope will keep us running.
We want the outcome of this race to not only be a sign of the end of human trafficking in Chattanooga, but every city, county, state, and country. We will Hope. We will fight together. We will Finish strong.
