BENEFITING: Abolition International
ORGANIZER: WBGL's Team
EVENT DATE: Apr 26, 2014
I'm participating in this year's Illinois Marathon while raising money to help the twenty-seven million people who are enslaved today, which is more than at any other point in human history. Nearly two million children are currently being exploited around the world and right here in the United States. In Chicago alone, thousands of women and girls are victims of trafficking every year.
I would truly appreciate your help as I join with WBGL, partnering with Abolition International, to build a home where young girls rescued from human trafficking can find healing, hope, and restoration.
Your donations on this Crowdrise page will go to help build a model after-care facility in Tennessee, that will help young girls rescued from trafficking in our region. Your gift in any amount will be a great help.
Other ways to get involved:
Join WBGL’s "Team Abolition International” during the Illinois Marathon races, April 25-26 in Champaign, and raise support for Abolition International. Even if you have never run before, consider joining us in the 5K, 10K, half or full marathon. This race isn’t about your footsteps, but about your heartbeat.
