THE STORY:

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.
