Over 1,000 participants strolled and sprinted through Federal Way for the third annual Break the Chains of Human Trafficking 5k fundraiser on Saturday.

Event organizers said this is the biggest turnout the event as generated so far.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Federal Way Coalition Against Trafficking. The coalitions was formed out of the need to address the problem of human trafficking in Federal Way.

There have been several reported cases of trafficking in Federal Way, most recently the bust at the Blue Moon in 2012, when eight people were indicted for operating an interstate prostitution ring at the Korean nightclub.

Mayor Jim Ferrell and others kicked off the event on Saturday with testimonials in support of the efforts. The crowd broke purple paper chains at the start of the 5k, which began and ended at the Federal Way Farmers Market.
