1 Corinthians 10:13 MSG “No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he’ll never let you be pushed past your limit; he’ll always be there to help you come through it”
Every 30 seconds another victim is forced into Human Trafficking. In the 1440 minutes of every day that we are free, a victim is living enslaved and their families and friends fear never seeing them again. Unfortunately, Michigan is ranked one of the worse states for Human Trafficking in the United States. The fears of the victims, their families and friends definitely outweigh my fear of running a half marathon. I am going to face and conquer my fear because of the many people involved in Human Trafficking who have been unable to conquer theirs.
I am running The Detroit Free Press Half Marathon in support of Love Runs. Love Runs is raising money to fight Human Trafficking in Metro Detroit. With your help:
$10 — provides food and a hygiene kit for a victim
$14 — will house a rescued victim for a night
$25 — will give educational skills
$100 — will shelter a victim for a night; provide 15 hygiene/nutrition kits, 1 year of mentoring for reading, support life skills, training, and medical/psychological treatment.
Any donation will stay in Metro Detroit. We Run Because They Can’t.
Join us in the fight to end human trafficking in Metro Detroit.
