OK200- Stop the Traffic wrote -
One promise, "ok, let's do it!" changed my life (Rocky Vest, Co-Founder).
I promised my friend that I would ride 200 miles with him in one day, an impossible goal at the time. Two others jumped on board for our crazy goal and our lives have never been the same. That promise has turned into a non-profit, OK200: Stop the Traffic. We use our bikes to raise funds and awareness to fight human trafficking.
Now we are embarking on the TN200: Stop the Traffic, an expansion of the OK200 organization, a ride based in the Nashville area.
TN200 participants commit to riding a 100-mile relay or the full 200 miles as an out and back style ride starting in Franklin, TN and to the same location. All participants are committed to raising a portion of the organization’s $20,000 goal. 100% of the funds raised by the cyclists' campaigns goes to restoration homes in Nashville and Nepal that provide physical, mental, spiritual recovery and life skills to survivors of human sex trafficking. These homes offer survivors the consistent, predictable and reliable caregivers they’ve been without while exposed to human trafficking.
Our ride and fundraising efforts are critical to expanding the reach restoration homes have for young victims of trafficking. Let's Stop the Traffic together.
