Awesome Day at the Justice Run
November 10, 2017
Let's take a stand against human trafficking and raise some money for great organizations doing amazing work! The 8th annual Justice Run is partnering with local non-profits to raise money to fight human trafficking. You can run on behalf of SHIFT or donate to help raise awareness about fighting sex-trafficking in Denver between now and October 1st!
SHIFT is uniting in the fight to bring awareness and a call to action within the community to fight human trafficking. Their goal? To “SHIFT from Awareness to Action!” This student led initiative will bring many elements together with one aim: EMPOWER TO PREVENT. The vision of the SHIFT is to educate the community at large and to mobilize them into taking action to fight sex trafficking both locally and globally. As a community we need to protect our children. Denver is one of the top 4 most trafficked cities in America. Why? Perhaps it’s because no one is standing in the way. Our precious children… your sons, your daughters are being targeted. NOW is the time to fight this rising crime, so let’s start here in our backyard and have our efforts grow around the world! What started with a team of 6 high school students in 2015-16 from one high school, grew to 6 area high schools in 2016-17 and continues to grow for the 2017-18 school year with multiple events and opportunities to spread awareness and get involved. Justice Run is just ONE way to show your support and help make a difference. Look for the annual SHIFT Conference to take place February of 2018 as well.
Every cent of your race registration($35) and your donations, whether $5 or $500, go directly to the non-profits. Together, we can make a difference!
