Through a series of experiences in college, my eyes were opened to the horrific evil of human trafficking that plagues our world. Since that time, my heart has continually stirred to find ways to help fight this evil. Battling such a great human atrocity can feel impossible and leave us feeling helpless against it. However, I refuse to give in to the ease of closing my eyes and ears to this tragedy. Therefore, I have decided to team with an organization called "Love Runs" to help fight against modern day slavery here in Metro Detroit.
Love Runs is an organization battling the dark reality of human trafficking in the Metro-Detroit area. This October, I will be running a 5K with the Detroit Free Press Marathon to raise money for Love Runs! I am far from being a runner, or even enjoying running. However, I believe that even our most feeble attempts to fight can make a huge difference, even if it's just for one person! The Lord is teaching me to get out of my comfort zone to make a difference for those who are enslaved every day. This money will go toward organizations that shine a light on human trafficking by bringing awareness, prevention, rescue, and restoration in the Metro Detroit area.
The goal is for each individual runner to raise $1,440 and here is why:
"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 will you do with it? Join us in the fight to end human trafficking in Metro Detroit. "
Would you consider helping me in the fight to stop human trafficking in Metro-Detroit in any of the following ways?
-Prayer for the victims of this tragic evil, the perpetrators of this evil, and for those working to make a difference through countless organizations.
-Spreading awareness of the reality of human trafficking in our world and in our backyards to those around you.
-Donating any amount of money that is on your heart, even the smallest amount can make a difference in the fight against human trafficking.
