This exciting inaugural long-distance relay race is designed to gather teams of 6, 8, 10 or 12 to share the responsibility in covering 152 miles and help fight human trafficking in which Ohio is ranked 4th in the United States. The I-75 corridor from Dayton to Toledo is used as a major hub in transporting trafficked individuals. Our route heads north from Dayton weaving around this stretch of this trafficking superhighway. Sex trafficking is the world’s fasted growing illegal activity. It is a $13 billion per year business in the U.S. alone of which 75% of victims are sexually enslaved.

Sparrows Hope House Bangalaru, India

Will you help with the purchase and development of this home that will initially house up to 25 women who are rescued out of human trafficking? This safe house will help with recovery and rehabilitation, vocational training, counseling and spiritual care to women who have escaped the bondage of human slavery. The initial costs of this home will be around $75,000 (land and building). The ongoing operational costs will be a blend of donations and a percentage generated by products made by the residents.

India Expeditions

  • In 2017 our team traveled 1000 miles from Mumbai to Chennai as we ran the distance in 34 days speaking at schools and universities about the issue of human trafficking. In 2018 our team ran and biked 500 miles from Chennai to Kovalam in 15 days speaking to thousands of students. We thank the Rotary Clubs of India for taking an interest in this issue and sponsoring our dinners and lodging. We thank Indian local and state police for escorting us and many newspapers and local news stations for covering our efforts to draw awareness of human slavery. In January/February 2019 we hope to cover 750 miles running/biking from Guntur to Kolkata.
