Race UnChained with Team Removing Chains!

thumb ArkRunLogoRun, walk, swim, ride and more for child abuse, child trafficking and bullying survivors through our Removing Chains survivor support program!

So many athletes hit some sort of track each year. We are so proud of your achievements and this year we are looking for amateur and professional athletes running marathons, walkathons, triathalons, biking or bowling to do it to help survivors of child abuse, child trafficking and bullying that Ark of Hope for Children helps and reaches out to. We will even provide you your own T-Shirt for entering and running with us if you will start one of our cool Crowdrise fundraisers like the one to the right!

 Imagine those who are bound by trafficking or abuse right now! Now think of those who may be free, but feel permanently bound in their own minds from traumas they are fighting to escape. Some have just begun the fight, some don't know where to turn or who to turn to. Some cannot afford professional help or have no insurance. Many cannot speak of the horrors they faced with anyone face to face, so they suffer alone behind ever tightening walls. We can be the change in their lives. Let's help them remove their chains by Racing Unchained and providing funds we desperately need to serve their needs! 


Race Unchained is inspired by abuse survivor and Ark of Hope supporter Dan Villa. Dan was to run a few triathalons for victims of abuse and wear our logo, however Dan has had to delay his racing for health reasons.

Whether you have already chosen your racing event for this year, or you want to be in one, you can now race WITH US! Once you have started your Racing Unchained Team Fundraiser and raised a small amount of funds, Ark of Hope will provide you with an official Racing Unchained with Team Removing Chains shirt you can wear before, during and after the race in appreciation for partnering with us. Ark of Hope for Children wants to partner with you as we all support victims of child abuse, child trafficking and bullying globally.

I am making a difference... I am helping to Remove Their Chains!

Every year hundreds of thousands of girls and boys are victimized or trafficked at the hands of abusers. Whether abused physically or sexually; whether rented hourly for sex or trapped in forced labor, the personal toll is horrendous. Thousands of adults, once victimized as children, still suffer years later with fear, trust issues, traumatic flashbacks, PTSD, night terrors and more. Too many find themselves with little to no help, but why should they suffer in silence? Ark of Hope and their Removing Chains support site help them, now I am choosing to help more be heard and find Hope!

Removing Chains live chat support site, as part of Ark of Hope for Children, is breaking the chains that enslave survivors through impassioned eMentors and Survivors Coaches. Along with self-help resources and helping survivors find local help near them no matter where they live globally you can help break their chains. They even plan the Harbourage Safe Homes to provide long term care in Florida for rescued child trafficking victims.

Friends and my online followers please sponsor me in my event! Ark of Hope will provide me with an official Racing Unchained with Team Removing Chains shirt for the race. Your support will empower me as I race knowing that I will be helping victimized children and adults with every step. Your donations are 100% tax deductible. Please help by supporting me, then share this with everyone you know. Let’s Remove Their Chains Together!
