Thanks for visiting my fundraising page!
I recently helped fundraiser for Somaly Mam's 18for18 Project Rescue in their efforts to stop sex trafficking worlwide. Together we raised over $70,000 which is enough to fund rescues for a year plus more. A group of us threw ourselves out of a perfectly good airplane 18000 feet high, all in the name of bringing awareness to sex trafficking.
Now after conquering skydiving I want to challenge myself by being part of the Survivor Mud Run benefitting the Somaly Mam Foundation, which involves about 3.5 muddy miles through 23 obstacles.
Join us in the fight for life,
The fight for freedom…
Facts to Know:
In this global crisis, children as young as four years old may be sold for as little as $50 dollars and forced to service up to 30 clients a day.
According to UNICEF, as many as 2 million children are subjected to prostitution in the global commercial sex trade. The average age of first exploitation through prostitution is 13. At least 100,000 of those children are in the United States.
