BENEFITING: RUN 2 RESCUE

THE STORY:

We are standing with Run2Rescue, running a half-marathon to rescue young girls and women who have been victims of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. Please join us in supporting Run 2 Rescue’s mission to reach, rescue, and restore young women from a life of pain and slavery, to a life of hope and freedom. A friend from church who volunteers at Run2Rescue, and who is literally in the trenches working with law enforcement to save these girls, shared with me the horrific realities of this organized crime operation, whose perpetrators prey on young girls in our neighborhoods, on the streets, and on social media and the internet. Many of these girls and young women are vulnerable to deception and manipulation from men who offer a false “prince charming” attitude, only to then be coerced, shamed, and threatened to work as sex slaves. Other girls are beaten, drugged, and raped. I remember one particular conversation on Focus on the Family radio broadcast, of a young woman who shared her story as a former child trafficking victim and how she escaped the industry with the help of Shared Hope International. Girls as young as twelve, and even younger, are sexually exploited and are being used for sex trafficking. I was moved with compassion when i heard her story, and then hearing from my friend at Church made me want to do something about it.  This is real issue in the US that parents, families, and communities need to be aware of.   Your donations will help Run2Rescue in providing these young girls and women much needed resources for shelter, transportation costs and investigative services to medical expenses and housing.  At this time, critical funds are needed towards a triage home for these rescued girls.  Your funds, and more importantly your prayers, will enable Run2Rescue to help more girls be set free and find restoration and healing.

Thank you! God bless you, Arnel & Rebecca
