This is my 3rd year running with Love Runs and I have stepped up my game this year. I am a team captain and am training for the full marathon--26.2 miles! Crazy! It has been hard to get up for runs at 5:30am before the kids get up and find the enthusiasm to train, especially since I don't really enjoy running. However, the cause is empowering and I have witnessed the difference in the lives of some of the girls who have been rescued. It also warms my heart to know that Natalia participated in her first run this year making a statement that "Kids are not for sale" and that she also gathered items to prepare 2 welcome bags to deliver to Vista Maria for 2 new future residents.
Why 1440? This is the number of minutes in every day that a human trafficking victim is enslaved, and the same number of minutes we are free. I hope that you will consider supporting me in the fight to end human trafficking in Metro Detroit.
