Footraces to Benefit Amnesty International

Amnesty International USA is taking its slogan of "Get up, stand up for your rights" one step further and asking people to jog for the cause at its Run for Freedom Race on Saturday.

The international nonprofit organization, which plans on making the run an annual event, advocates for political and other nonviolent prisoners worldwide.

All runners are asked to register at Huntington Street and Pacific Coast Highway, south of the Huntington Beach Pier, at 7 a.m. A 5K race begins at 8 a.m. and a 10K at 9 a.m. Runners must register for the longer race by 8. Children must register for their 10:30 a.m. race no later than 9.

The registration fee of $25 for adults and $15 for children will benefit Amnesty chapters in Irvine, Orange and Long Beach.

Information: (714) 308-6789.
