Trafficking, sex-slaves and child prostitution is the human rights issues of our time. As many as 4 million women and children are caught in sexual slavery in our world today. A young girl can be sold for as little as $150 and will often be forced to service at least 10 customers per day, or over 3,000 a year.
Funds raised from 30 for Freedom will further the anti-trafficking work of Project Rescue, F.R.E.E. International and Venture.
It all started with Brent Silkey’s ridiculous vision to get 30 of his friends to run 30 miles, and raise $30,000, on his 30th birthday to help victims of sex trafficking. Brent’s vision inspired hundreds to run and raised $81,346.
For Brent’s 31st birthday he wants to involve 750 people in a 5k, half marathon, and a 30 mile run to raise $250,000 to fight this horrific injustice.
