Run 4 Their Lives is a Freedom 4/24 event that raises awareness and funds to bring sexually exploited women and children into freedom.
Freedom 4/24 partners with both domestic and international organizations. The Run 4 Their Lives – Buffalo 5K will be highlighting one of these partners, The Home of New Beginnings, in Thailand.
Home of New Beginnings provides women who desire to start new with the physical, emotional, spiritual and educational support they need to break out of sexual slavery. They provide scholarships for high school, bible school, and college. Young women are able to dream again. Now with families, careers, and positions of leadership, these girls have hope for different kinds of futures. Through outreach events, Beginnings had shared the love of Jesus and gift of family with more than 1,000 women trappen in Bangkok’s red light districts. Funds raised at Freedom 4/24’s event, Run 4 Their Lives – Buffalo, goes to Beginnings and other similar partners.
