I started this journey as a way to help those who have been victims of human trafficking in a practical way...with running. This race is a huge endeavor for me, and the raising of funds is new territory. However, the real challenge lies in the mind and in the heart. This cause hits very close to home as a parent, and seeing that even children have been victims. Please take a moment and educate yourselves on this very real problem affecting Metro Detroit, and pray for those victims who don't have 1440 minutes of freedom each day.
1440. The number of minutes in every day that a human trafficking victim is , and the same number of minutes we are free. What will you do with your 1440 minutes? Join Love Runs in the the fight to end human trafficking in Metro Detroit.
Every 30 seconds, Human Trafficking claims a new victim. Children of all ages and backgrounds, including some of the most affluent, are being hijacked into a living Hell of physical, sexual and emotional exploitation, and torture…all around us. Poverty and lack of basic necessities place so many in the Detroit area at risk for trafficking as well. Add to that a legion of children from broken homes, or those who are abused and neglected, and Michigan’s proximity to strategic borders and transportation routes, and it all adds up to a modern-day epidemic of slavery.
