Spend One Hour to Help Stop Child Trafficking

My excellent friend Sandy alerted me to an upcoming anti-trafficking awareness  and fundraising event in the northwest suburbs of Chicago.  The event is hosted by Stop Child Trafficking Now (http://sctnow.org/):

Welcome to the SCTNow – Northwest Chicago 5k Walk/Run 2011

Date: September 24, 2011
Location: Moraine Hills State Park — Northern Woods Picnic Shelter
Start Time: 9:30am
Registration Fee: Free (Suggested Fundraising Minimum $100)

Why Walk in Northwest Chicago?

Join thousands of individuals in 33 cities nationwide as we walk/run this September to stop the most heinous crime of our day – child sex slavery. By walking or running, YOU can help bring an end to slavery in our cities and in our nation once and for all! It is simple to register and raise funds! Our Walk/Runs across the United States and Canada are free to the public. However, we do encourage fundraising. 100% of funds raised will directly support our mission to stop the demand for child trafficking. And participants who raise $100 or more are eligible for a T-shirt and other great prize incentives! You can walk or run as an individual or with a team (teams are 3 + You, or more)! In addition, you have the opportunity to choose one of SCTNow’s partner organizations to receive 10% of the funds you raise.

To register, go to the SCTNow website:  http://events.sctnow.org/site/TR?fr_id=1084&pg=entry

While it is a little late to raise funds, your donation, participation in and/or posting this event on your social media pages will help raise much needed awareness.  BTW: Sandy and I are going to run this (yes, Sandy, we are : )).  Come and join us if you can!

Joy and blessings,
