Run 4 Their Lives is a Freedom 4/24 event that raises awareness and funds to bring sexually exploited women and children into freedom.
Run 4 Their Lives is Freedom 4/24’s race series which is held in cities across the United States to bring communities together for a family friendly, hopeful event to increase awareness of human trafficking, share stories of girls who are now rescued and free, and to encourage continued advocacy. Often participants increase their advocacy efforts by becoming fundraisers and using the race as a platform to share about the issue of human trafficking and the work of Freedom 4/24. Funds raised through each Run 4 Their Lives race is used to support the continued work in the fight for freedom in partnership with Redeeming Love.
Redeeming Love: Redeeming Love is a Christ following, faith-based community operating in Los Angeles. Here’s just a portion of statistics that Redeeming Love has gathered on human trafficking: On average, traffickers target girls during their most vulnerable stage, between the ages of 12-14. They select girls with vulnerabilities that make them easier to manipulate and control. Many victims have backgrounds that include foster care, abandonment, or homelessness and therefore have little or no familial support structures to return to. Tragically, by the time they are enslaved by their trafficker, over 90% of victims have already been sexually abused at some point in their childhood. Redeeming Love believes it is their responsibility to fight for the cause of the oppressed and to be agents for their healing. They do this by offering care to the whole person in order to achieve their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing.
