BENEFITING: Love Runs - NorthRidge Church
ORGANIZER: Love Runs - NorthRidge Church
EVENT DATE: Oct 15, 2017
DAYS TO GO: 57
I'm running my first half marathon in October to raise awareness for human trafficking in Metro Detroit. Every dollar Love Runs raises is put toward prevention, rescue and restoration of local victims. Unfortunately human trafficking is more local than any of us understand. It's happening in our own backyards, we just don't know it. Kids. Adults. Michigan is among the top of the list for human trafficking in the nation. I've set my goal to $1440 because that is the number of minutes in every day that we are free, and these victims are enslaved. This is one of the hardest things I've ever had to train for. I'm not much of a runner and it's been extremely difficult to stick with it. But victims don't have that freedom and I am running for them. Any amount will help save a local life.
