EVENT DATE: Jul 30, 2016
There are an estimated 4,500,000 people trapped in sex slavery worldwide.
There are approximately 100,000-300,000 CHILDREN trapped in sex slavery in America.
1 in 6 runaways are suspected to be human trafficking victims, most of these are girls ages 12-14.
On July 30th, I will be swimming 2.4 miles, biking 112 miles, and running 26.2 (marathon), consecutively in under 17 hours, in the IRONMAN Vineman triathlon. The IRONMAN is considered the most difficult one day endurance race in the world.
I'm dedicating my race to fundraising for FREE International (through Speed the Light), an organization that works to find these victims and helps them break free and heal.
The IRONMAN is 140.6 miles. My goal is to find 140 people to sponsor one mile for a minimum of $20. The money raised will go toward funding search efforts at large events like the Superbowl -- events that are hotbeds for sex trafficking.
Please consider sponsoring a mile (or more!) of my race to raise money to find these children and rescue them out of the sex slavery!
