THE STORY:

This will be my third year running for Love Runs. It's a cause that just won't leave my heart and I cannot turn away. Once you know, you know, and you can't pretend you don't. The thing is that we CAN do something about this. We don't have to just watch the news and hear another story and shake our heads and say "That's so sad." or "That's so disgusting!" "How can a person do that to another human being?" We can raise awareness, we can resuce victims, and we can restore their lives!


So why Love Runs? Because we do more than just run. We invest our time into the organizations we support and through this are able to see first hand how the funds are used. Here is where your money will go:


Vista Maria- I've been mentoring there since before I'd even heard about human trafficking. In 2015, when the state of Michigan passed legistlation to protect and provide restoration for victims, creating the development of a state task force, Vista Maria became the first licensed facility to provide housing and trauma counseling for the victims.

AWOL- All Worthy of Love. This organization is a grassroots street outreach. They provide toiletry bags, food, and other necessities to victims. They work on relationship building in the hope that these victims come to know that they are valued and that there is another option for them.

S.O.A.P. (Save Our Adolscents from Prostitution). Love Runs works with this national organzation to distribute soaps at hotels. Sadly, there is a rise in trafficking during the auto show and any other event that draws big crowds, so we hit the road in groups of 4, reaching as many hotels as we can especially during these events. This organiztion also provides tranining to hotel personnel in knowing how to recognize signs and what to do if they suspect that this is occurring.

Detroit Rescue Mission. This organization provides housing specifically for rescued victims of human trafficking. In 2015, Love Runs donated the funds to break ground on these facilities for victims.
