I am an endurance athlete who loves to run, bike, and swim. I am also an abolitionist! I have found an organization that I am super passionate about and want to use my talents to help.
The child sex trade has over 2 million victims currently in bondage and there is something we can do RIGHT NOW to free them. Operation Underground Railroad Rescue has spent the last year rescuing over 200 children from sex slavery and putting their perpetrators behind bars. They are former government operatives and navy seals that have the training and talents to perform these highly dangerous missions. They have many more missions planned, and many more children to save, but they our need monetary support to do it. The cost of just one mission is $25, 000.
This year I will be racing several endurance events including two half Ironman's and an Ironman. I will be using these events in order to raise awareness and obtain donations for OURrescue. My goal is to raise a minimum of $2000, the cost to free one child. Of course I won't stop there, I would like to raise as much as possible this triathlon season.
