Running For Justice was able to give DTN Ministries, $8,148.34, to move toward their goal

of establishing a safe home/s for children who are at risk of being trafficking or have been rescued from human trafficking and sex slavery, in Thailand. We were also able to bring much awareness of what human trafficking is to our region. We thank all of you who prayed, all those who volunteered in whatever capacity, the businesses and churches who sponsored monetary, goods and services, churches who let us come in and present Running For Justice, those individuals who donated monetary, those who signed up to run or walk and those who baked! We are forever grateful for your labor of love and sacrifice, to make a difference!

How big of an issue is human trafficking?

The United Nations has recently declared that,” Human Trafficking,” is now the second largest source of income for organized crime, worldwide. A 32 billion annual industry, modern day trafficking is a type of slavery that involves the transport or trade of people for the purpose of work. According to the U.N. about 2.5 million people around the world are ensnared in the web of human trafficking at any given time. Each year an estimated 800,000 (of the 32 billion) women and children, within national or international borders are sex trafficked for the purpose of forced sex work. Commercial sex exploitation includes pornography, prostitution and sex trafficking of women and girls. (boy and men, too, but the numbers are much smaller) Some sex trafficking is highly visible, such as street prostitution, but many trafficked victims remain unseen, operating out of unmarked brothels in unsuspecting—and sometimes suburban—neighborhoods. Sex traffickers may also operate out of a variety of public and private locations, such as massage parlors, spas, and strip clubs. View more facts about human trafficking here.

Can my business or church sponsor this 5K Fun Run/Walk to help defray expenses?

YES! We need all the help we can get, and every little bit counts. Contact our organizer, Susie Weigel, with any questions. Our goal is to raise as much money as we can to help fight human trafficking, and business sponsorships are key to keeping overhead and event costs to a minimum. If a church wants to sponsor contact Susie Weigel.
