In October of 2015 I completed a Love Runs Free Press Marathon,.....all 26.2 miles. The reason was that my heart was touched when the tragedy of human/"sex" trafficking was presented to me on a Vision trip to Mumbai (Bombay), India. The opportunity was afforded to meet and speak to the newly freed trafficked women and children. Their stories of betrayal and trickery were heart wrenching. The methods used to "break" these women and children are unspeakable. Being imprisoned 1440 minutes every day with no hope of an end is horrendous. These women and children are "housed" in what are called "cages": 8 X 5 X 5 foot spaces with a trapdoor in the roof to let the "Johns" enter and have their way. Cost to the John is about $0.35 to wreak havoc on these innocents. Raising money for them is my Why. In 2015, we learned that Michigan has been number one in the trafficking "business", and, later that year was beat out of that slot by Nevada. Terrible "achievement". And, we had the opportunity to meet a Michigan rescued victim who told us her story of being "sold" and used by hundreds of "men". Much as I am committed to this cause, last year I did not generate the energy to run for it. This year I visited 3rd World countries that have flourishing trafficking "businesses" and I am energized. I am asking you to generate donations to help us provide housing for rescued victims. Help me help them.
