I will be running the Marine Corps Marathon on Oct. 27, 2013 for the Polaris Project. The Polaris Project is the leading organization in the global fight against human trafficking and modern-day slavery. Worldwide, it is estimated that 27 million people are affected by human trafficking. In the U.S., an estimated 100,000 children are forced into the sex trade each year. Please help me support the Polaris Project, an organization that offers comprehensive clinical social services to victims, operates a 24-hour national human trafficking hotline, is influential in getting laws passed to combat human trafficking, and increases awareness about this issue in schools and workplaces.
