FREE family friendly event supporting the rescue of child and female trafficking victims! Community event featuring a mile walk + run, food trucks, and foot painting - pets welcome!

Free for Life International and JOY International are teaming up to host the Nashville Barefoot Mile to fight modern day slavery! Alone we can do a little, but working together we can accomplish so much more in using our resources to rescue another... and another... and another!

The Nashville Barefoot Mile is taking place August 13th, 2017. This event starts at 4:00 p.m. and is located in Centennial Park. Come out and enjoy a mile long walk + run, food trucks, community bonding, excercise, music, and joining in the fight to end human trafficking! This is a family event, feel free to include your entire family (even the furry ones!)

History of Barefoot Mile...

On July 19th, 2010, while searching in a garbage dump in Cambodia for children at high risk of being kidnapped and sold to brothels, Dr. Jeff noticed that all the children were barefoot. On that day, he made a decision to begin living barefoot in solidarity with the millions of trafficked and impoverished children around the world. One year later, The Barefoot Mile was born and has now become a global event. It is a wonderful way to gather a local community to stand behind the horrors of child and human trafficking.

YOU can help us fight this travesty against children, and partner with Free for Life and Joy International!

As a "barefoot" walker, you have the opportunity to ask your friends and family to sponsor you as you walk barefoot in solidarity. By doing this, you help raise awarness for the event and increase your impact to help rescue more trafficked girls. Please know that while it's encouraged, it is not mandatory to walk barefoot.

We can't wait to see you there!
