The Salt Lake Tri Club (SLTC) is partnering with operation underground railroad to raise funds to help them rescue children from sex slavery. Right now there are over 2 million children being sold every day. The men and women of operation underground railroad have the training and experience to rescue these children and put their perpetrators behind bars. They just need our help to do it!
Every donation received goes immediately to fund the next rescue mission, help in post mission recovery, and train law enforcement on important predator tracking software. In the last two years of operation OUR rescue has rescued over 413 children and put 136 traffickers behind bars. We want to help them continue this important lifesaving work.
This year we as a club will be participating in several triathlons ranging from sprint distance to Ironman Triathlons. We would like to use these races to raise money for OURrescue and rescue children from sex slavery. Every time participating club members race, they will post and share this campaign via social media and email. They will post how many miles they race. You may donate a dollar amount equal to the miles raced or you can just make a donation of your choosing in honor of the race. You are also welcome to donate at any amount at any time. Anything will make a difference.
The distances we will race include
5k: 3.1 miles
10k: 6.2 miles
Half marathon: 13.1 miles
Sprint distance triathlon: 16 miles
Olympic Distance Triathlon: 32 miles
Half Ironman Triathlon: 70.3
