Why Run for Freedom?
All proceeds go toward the fight against human trafficking and sex slavery
by supporting organizations F.R.E.E. International and Project Rescue.
We slayed that old evil called slavery over 150 years ago, in 1864, with the 13th Amendment. Or so we thought. In fact There are more slaves today worldwide than at any point in history. In fact we did not kill slavery. We merely pushed it underground, where it thrives, hidden yet robust. Human trafficking is as old as human society. Steeped in shadow as it is today and propped up by high profitability and the anonymity provided by the internet, slavery has the potential to grow at an alarming rate. Consider the consequence of inaction and willful ignorance – an entire generation of youth swallowed by misery. Something should be done. And it can be done. We run as part of a movement to see people set free. By supporting organizations like F.R.E.E. International and Project Rescue, we are helping to rid the world of modern slavery.
