Host A Walk.

APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED FOR 2018

 

 

 

      

 
What is the walk for freedom?



Walk for Freedom is our global fundraising and
awareness event, rallying tens of thousands of
people, taking millions of steps, in hundreds
of cities all over the world. We walk to disrupt the
demand of slavery.

It’s an outward expression of A21’s inward desire
to see slavery abolished everywhere–
in our cities, in our communities, and in our world.

One step at a time and one dollar at a time,
we fundraise and walk to see a world without slavery.

 

This year, we will take more ground than ever before.

All walks will officially take place on October 20, 2018. All hosts must be 18 years old or older to be considered, and there must be a co-host for each event. While hosts are responsible for any walk  expenses, there are so many ways to fundraise and raise money for each event.

Possible Expenses 

We completely understand that any event, local or
global, will have expenses tied into it, but we
do try to keep costs to a minimum so more can
be donated to the cause. That being said, there
are a few expenses that hosts will have to take into
consideration: 

  • Permits
  • T-shirts
  • Printing Costs
  Promotional Materials
  Insurance
  Equipment rentals (tables, PA Systems, etc.)

 When deciding to host an event, consider...   

   

1. Do I have enough people to support and engage in this walk?

2. Is there another walk close to me?

3. Do I have a venue or area willing to host the walk?

4. Are there any local businesses or churches that will partner with me?
