BENEFITING: OK200- Stop the Traffic

EVENT: Ok200 2016

EVENT DATE: Jun 24, 2016

THE STORY:

We ride to raise funds, to support survivors, raise awareness, and fight human trafficking locally and wherever it exists.

The Problem

Human trafficking is the trade of human beings for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation, forced labor, or child soldiering. This modern form of slavery is a world wide issue and at its highest recorded levels in human history.

Our Response

Our response to this horrible problem has been to continue to sacrifice ourselves physically and use those efforts to benefit the oppressed in Nepal and in Southeast Asia.

We have raised over $110,000 in the last 4 years with $60,000 of that being raised in 2015. That money has been used to support a safe house for sex traffic survivors in Nepal and to fully fund a film about trafficking awareness called Don’t Get in the Van. Hundreds of lives of been positively impacted by the OK200 ride. It is not a stretch to say that lives are being saved because of the OK200 ride.

Rocky Vest, a founder of OK200 said, “None of us knew that we would be where we are today. We just wanted to use our bikes and help others.”

What started as a small, faithful response to an egregious problem has grown and changed our lives and saved lives across the world.
