Washington DC Volunteer Team

This is the official campaign of the O.U.R. Washington DC Volunteer Team. Join us to end trafficking



Your Story

We are a group of concerned citizens brought together as the Washington D.C. Volunteer Team, to help do our part in ending human trafficking both in the United States, and worldwide! Unfortunately, human trafficking across all levels still exists today, and it is an endemic that must be ended. With your support, we can better aid the Operation Underground Railroad Team in their mission to eradicate human traffickers and save lives.

The Impact

Washington D.C. is not only our nation's capital, but also one of the largest metropolitan areas in our country. D.C. is home to millions of hard-working Americans who want to do whats right for their families. We here at O.U.R Rescue want to extend that right to every family across the globe. We believe with the unique culture Washington D.C. offers, it can become a bastion for the volunteer teams across the country to affect change! 

Get Involved

One of the biggest fundraisers we do to support O.U.R. in the D.C. area is put on our annual Race to Stop Traffick. Come join us on Saturday, October 7, 2017 at 8 a.m. at the beautiful Lake Accotink in northern Virginia! There will be a 5K and a 1 mile Fun Run. Copy and paste the following link to register:

Come join us as we "Race to Stop Traffick" Saturday October 7, 2017 at 8am, at Lake Accotink Park in Northern Virginia. There will be a 1 mile Fun Run as well as a timed 5k. Families and kids can participate in post-race festivities such as carnival games, face painting, balloon art, and the very popular raffle booth. Registration opens July 4th with early bird pricing!

Due to space restrictions, this year’s race will be capped at the first 300 participants. Race t-shirts and snacks will be given to every participant with prizes awarded to the top finishers in each category. Categories include the following:

5K Race:
Top 3 male finishers
Top 3 female 5K finishers
Top 3 children (12 and under) finishers

1 Mile Fun Run:
Top 3 children (12 and under) finishers

All proceeds directly benefit Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.), a non-profit organization whose mission is to rescue and help rehabilitate children from human trafficking.

Wow this site needs work. i wanted to donate 50/ month and it didn't allow me. I also tried to log in but it hasn't sent the message to my email so I can continue. For all I know this won't get to you either. This is great what you are doing but if you don't clean up this site the rest of us can not help the way we want. Thanks and God Bless Dennis Gallagher
