I'm so glad you decided to check out my fundraising page!
Here's the breakdown:
I will be training for a Spartan Race in West Virgina August 25-26 and competing in the Elite Heat (slightly audacious goal but that's okay, it's worth it for the cause).
How will this work?
I will be uploading my workouts every day.
Each day I will workout for one hour.
Every hour I am asking for $10.
I will be running a TON and with each mile I am asking for $5.
What will this race entail?
I will be running 10 miles with 29 obstacles. The fastest time for this race is 80 minutes so my goal is to achieve that.
You can read more about the race here.
Who are you fundrasinig for?
I am fundraising for an organization called Hookers for Jesus. The first time I was made aware of human trafficking was through the testimony of Annie Lobert, the founder of this organization. Hearing her testimony about being trafficked in the United States lit a fire in my heart to fight against the evil of slavery.
Hookers For Jesus is a non-profit which addresses the harmful effects of prostitution, sex trafficking, and sexual exploitation linked to pornography and the sex industry.
The primary mission of Hookers For Jesus is to Hook (Outreach) Give Hope (Jesus) Heal (emotional & spiritual restoration) and Help (Transitional Assistance) for those who have been negatively affected by sex trafficking and the adult entertainment industry.
Why are you doing this?
My heart breaks as I learn more about the immenisty of this evil and I refuse to sit back and do nothing. Justice and righteousness ae so essential to God's Kingdom that Psalm 89:14 even tells us that righteousness and justice are the foundation of God's trhone. His heart yearns for justice and so does mine. I want to use any resources I can to help break the chains and proclaim the freedom that is in Jesus Christ to the most oppressed people in the world.
I would love for you to join me in this challenging experience!!
Thanks so much for reading this far!
