Saturday, September 30th, was our 5th annual Trek Against Trafficking. First off, from everyone here at Love True, thank you to those that came out, volunteered, donated, ran, and cheered. The Trek was our best yet and it was because of you!
If you are curious about the results, here they are for the 5k and the 10k. The top scores were an incredible 16:44.65 and 38:14.46 respectively! These times are of course amazing but it is equally great that 165 runners crossed the finish line of the 5k and 88 for the 10k, along with those that participated in the 1 mile walk and all the kids that ran the kids’ races. The greatest number is the culmination of all the people that came out and participated in ending sex trafficking on a cool Saturday morning in September.
It was our best year yet in multiple ways. We had the most pre registrants and our highest grossing profit so far, $15,137.53! Leading up to the Trek, we were blown away by the amount of people that signed up and supported us through fundraising and sharing our posts. Each one of you had a huge hand in helping this year’s Trek be better than we expected it to be, so thank you!
Some of you might have seen on our other social media outlets that a trip to Cancun was being raffled off to those that fundraised for the Trek through Crowdrise. The winner was a 12 year old who raised $545 for the cause! It is truly amazing to see even those that are young actively being a part of the solution to ending trafficking.
Once again thank you to everyone who came out, ran, volunteered, fundraised, and spread the word. You are all making a difference. This event grows every year because people like you believe in ending sex trafficking. We at Love True cannot thank you enough! This year’s Trek was an amazing success. And we look forward to seeing you all again next year!
