About the 5K

The 5K Run for Dignity is an annual race held by World Youth Alliance North America as a side event to the Emerging Leaders Conference (ELC)*. The 5K run is an opportunity for the general public to show their support for promoting human dignity in policy and culture. In connection with this year’s ELC, participants will run to showcase their support for ending the global commodification of women.

If you want to run for Human Dignity, join us for this exciting event! Included in registration is a WYA Run for Dignity T-shirt. Additionally, prizes will be given out to top finishers. 

Run, because dignity matters.
