EVENT DATE: Apr 03, 2016
I will be running in a 5k race in order to raise awareness and money to free young girls, many as young as 5 years old, who are being sold into the global child sex trafficking trade.
With about 2 million children being exploited every year in the global commercial sex trade, much more must be done to stop these evil atrocities that steal children’s lives. The average age when young girls are forced into sex slavery is 12 to 14 and unless rescued, most will be dead within 5 to 7 years due to violence, disease, drugs, poor living conditions, or suicide.
Zoe International provides protection for at risk children as well as rescue and care for victims of child sex trafficking. Together, in the last three years we’ve raised nearly $7,000 to help Zoe protect these children. My goal is to increase that total as close to $10,000 as possible. Your donation can make an enormous difference in the life of a child. Thank you for your generosity.
