BENEFITING: The A21 Campaign
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2013
Slavery is a huge yet not recognized issue in the world today. There are actually around 27 million people trapped in slavery right now, 200,000 of which are in the United States of America. I am running this half marathon in hopes of raising awareness and money to support this cause. The A21 Campaign specifically deals with sex trafficking, which is when boys and girls of every age but usually younger are traded like animals and sold to service men for sex. They are held in horrid conditions and most enslaved die in slavery. Only 1-2% of girls are rescued. This is not a pretty issue, but I am facing it head-on and telling anyone I can about this ridiculous injustice. To find out more general information about slavery go to www.enditmovement.com. Or, to find out about my specific cause (The A21 Campaign) go to www.thea21campaign.org. Thanks for considering donating to my cause.
