Invite your friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers across Minnesota and our country to help #StoptheTrafficking. Walk or run 3.1 miles (5K) sometime between June 13 through June 21. Let us know that you completed your race through Facebook or e-mail (specific details will be emailed to participants), and we’ll enter you into a drawing for fun prize giveaways. Each participant will receive a race packet, including a dry-fit t-shirt and additional race swag. Race packets can be mailed for $5 or there is a safe, pick-up option on Friday, June 12 in Eden Prairie. Find more details and register at www.stopthetraffickingrun.org.
Even though we cannot gather as a large group, we can still raise awareness about the plight of victims, trapped in sexual exploitation also known as sex trafficking. Many do not realize that this still happens in our communities. We partner with local law enforcement in the metro area, who recently confirmed that active investigations are underway and involve multiple victims. All race proceeds will support non-profit organizations, who are serving sexually-exploited youth and women and are experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19. Proceeds will benefit Breaking Free, Terebinth Refuge, The Link, Source and Hope Sewn.
Price: Adults: USD 30.00
