The Freedom Climb is a symbolic gesture of the climb to freedom for many women and children around the world.  Statistics say that there are approximately 30 million people enslaved around the world today! "Freedom Climb North County: San Dieguito River Park” is for men, women and families and gives you the opportunity to get on your feet and to participate in raising funds and awareness for women and children who are at the highest risk of exploitation. Currently, the Freedom Climb supports 55 projects in 30 countries around the world.  Each of these projects provides an opportunity for hope to women and children who are facing extreme oppression, exploitation and trafficking.   The Freedom Climb is a project of Operation Mobilization, a global missions organization.

Invite your friends, family and church to join us.  There is something for all ages.

This and that

Please leave pets at home to eliminate any “trail conflicts”.
