Hi guys! I am running (possibly walking/crawling) this 5K to raise awareness about human trafficking and raise money for the victims of exploitation. This cause is so important and seldom spoken about, I want to help any way I can. The U.S. State Department estimates that between 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year (of which 80% are female and half are children) and between 14,500 and 17,500 people are trafficked into the U.S. each year. On average the age of entering into human trafficking is between 12-14 years old, these are mostly 'runaways' or unaccompanied minors who are most vulnerable to exploitation. In my work I help to get an education for homeless and unaccompanied minors, but I know there is so much more to be done to help. Please consider donating to this cause, I appreciate it!
