Get Outdoors for Freedom

You are being directed to the registration platform, Eventbrite. Rescue:Freedom does not lead these events. They are hosted by volunteers and these volunteers are not guides. You are assuming all responsibility for your training, preparation and hike/climb or backpack. Although it is regarded as a personal hike/climb/backpack and supports Rescue:Freedom, to foster community, the hike/climb/backpack will take place as a group. Interactions with volunteers before and during the hike are considered assistance based, as any person would offer on the trail. We are not a guide service and our volunteers are not guides. The only guided events are Mt. Baker and the Cascade Mountain Traverse. You as a participant are assuming all risks associated with these activities.

Create your own individual campaign. Running a 5k? Climbing a mountain? Biking across the state? Use your event to inspire others to give funds to set people free.

Join one of our established communities. We have a community of volunteer leaders organizing celebration hikes around the country. This is a great way to be part of a team and meet others who have your same passion to end sex trafficking around the world.

Turn your hike, race, or other outdoor event into a team campaign. Gather fellow runners, hikers, climbers, or riders to join forces and raise funds as a group.

Share your love for the outdoors, build new relationships, and fight trafficking.

We want to empower you to rally your community to get outdoors for the freedom of others.

Join an Adventure

These events are a celebration of raising funds for Rescue:Freedom, not a fundraising event in and of itself. Each event is hosted by volunteers, not Rescue:Freedom. These volunteers are not guides and you are assuming all responsibility for your safety and preparedness during training as well as during the celebratory hike/climb. To foster community, the hike/climb will take place as a group although participation is regarded as a personal event. Interactions with volunteers before and during the event are considered assistance-based, as any person would offer on the trail. We are not a guide service and volunteer hike/climb leaders are not guides: the only guided event is the Mt. Baker Guided Climb hosted by Mountain Madness. You as a participant are assuming all risks associated with these activities. All events are subject to change due to inclement weather or unsafe conditions. We are taking the current COVID-19 pandemic seriously and are making adjustments to these events if needed. Extra precautions will be taken by each facilitator according to recommendations by the CDC.

Want to host a Hike for Freedom?

Dates or locations of currently-offered Freedom Hikes don’t fit? Gather friends to do a local-to-you endurance hike (15-25 miles) or turn an already-planned guided hike / backpacking trip into a fundraiser to fight human trafficking.

WE’RE CHEERING YOU ON!

Fundraising and training resources, social media tools, and virtual support from Rescue:Freedom staff are available. Please send an email to fundraise@rescuefreedom.org with questions or help getting started.

 

HIKE FOR FREEDOM

Climb for Captives

Climb for Captives started when a group of friends decided to turn their summer mountain climbing trip into a fundraiser to fight slavery. Since the first climb in 2008, groups of friends have continued climbing together for the cause and have raised over $1,0000,000. 100% of all money raised with Climb for Captives campaigns goes directly to Rescue:Freedom so that they can rescue as many as possible.

WHAT IS CLIMB FOR CAPTIVES?

Each Climb for Captives fundraising campaign is independently organized by the participants. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to turn your outdoor adventure into a fundraiser to fight human trafficking. Whether you mobilize a group of friends or you are individually joining a guided climb, you can make a difference by turning your efforts into a Climb for Captives fundraiser.

*Climb for Captives is not a guide service and does not supervise or participate in the organizing or logistics of your climb. Campaign participants are solely responsible for the planning, organization, costs, and execution of your campaign.
