BENEFITING: Love Runs - NorthRidge Church
ORGANIZER: Love Runs - NorthRidge Church
EVENT DATE: Oct 15, 2017
DAYS TO GO: 27
Brandon and I were at church and we saw information about Love Runs, there was a meeting after service. For some reason, we felt really compelled to attend the meeting. We picked up the kids from their classes and the next thing you know we're signed up for a half marathon!! The reality of what the girls, kids, victims of human trafficking endure each day scares us, and we know we can help make a difference. For those who know us, know running is not our "thing", but those victims day to day, 1440 minutes each day, isn't their "thing" either. We've committed to train, challenge, and overcome our obstacles, to bring awareness to the human trafficking that is happening right here in our state, and our backyard. All funds raised through Love Runs help to rescue, restore and rehabilitate the victims of human trafficking through local organizations such as Vista Maria, All Worthy of Love, and Detroit Mission Ministeries. We thank you for your support in our fight to end human trafficking. Peace and love in His name.
Love Runs - 1440. The number of minutes in every day that a human trafficking victim is enslaved, and the same number of minutes we are free. What will you do with it? Join us in the fight to end human trafficking in Metro Detroit.
