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 do you do with that information? We know Michigan ranks 2nd human trafficking rates in the United States. Much of this is in the city of Detroit. It's when I hear statistics like these and my heart breaks. It breaks for the victims and their families. Also, it breaks because I want to do something but do not know where to start. When I heard about 'Love Runs,' I immediately knew I had to get involved.
As a new runner, I hesitated to commit to a half-marathon. IT'S 13.1 MILES!!! That is a lot for someone who just started on this journey called, running. However, this cause is not about running. It's about waking the world up to Jesus and fighting for the oppressed.
"Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow." Isaiah 1:17
As a follower of Christ, I am to learn to do right, seek justice, defend the oppressed, take up the cause of the orphans, and plead the case of the widow. Help me as I raise money to help fight human trafficking. My goal is $1440, which is the number of minutes in every day that a human trafficking victim is enslaved, and the same number of minutes I am free. Help me STOP THE TRAFFICKING! You can donate anything from $10 to $100. You can help stop human trafficking and fight for justice!
