Training, counseling, practical skills and most importantly, a safe haven, is what The House of Promise in Greater Lansing provides girls and women who have been victims of sex trafficking.

Last year, I 'ran' in the event - check out my special race number (thank you, Mike Hammond!).  My time didn't matter (not horrible, not great), but it felt good to be a part of something that DOES matter, which is helping people who are working to recover from what happened to them. You don't need to run, or walk or volunteer, though all those things would be welcomed. You don't need to give money, but if you'd like to donate you can click here.

Please know that there's a way to help the survivors of sex trafficking, which continues to be a widespread problem in our community and beyond. Joey Pants did an article here about the prevalance of sex trafficking in Michigan - we're the second worst state in the nation!

The 2017 Race2Freedom in Potterville will be Saturday, July 22nd, 8AM. All the details are available here.
