BENEFITING: Mortgage Professionals Providing Hope

EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2017

Michael Brucato

THE STORY:

800,000 women are trafficked into sex slavery every year. Fighting that feels overwhelming and seemingly hopeless. But giving hope to one? that we can do. I am going to compete in my first Ironman, with only 4 months to train from the ground up. Join me by sponsoring a dollar per mile ($140) or more so that we can provide a safe-house for a trafficked woman as well as language training, job training and everything she needs to start a new life. It's called Tri for Treasures, because that is the last thing these women feel like. Let's show them that they are more valuable than silver and gold. 


The Nonprofit organization I work for (MPPH) is partnering with Vite Trasformate (Transformed Lives) in Northern Italy where sex trafficking is happening at alarming rates due to weak laws and incredibly high levels of immigration from West Africa and Eastern Europe. Women are promised a better life abroad and the opportunity to take care of their families back at home, only to find when they arrive, that they have been tricked. They are then bought and sold and forced on the streets to sell their bodies to dozens of men a day. In the midst of this incredible evil, Vite Trasformate (VT) is creating a radical impact as they develop strong relationships with these women, and lead them to a place of safety and wholeness.
