ABOUT THIS TEAM
We are raising funds to fight human trafficking. Every dollar we raise through the miles we log will go towards the prevention of sex trafficking, rescue operations, and holistic survivor care. Our partners, Venture, F.R.E.E. International, and Lighthouse Foundation Nepal will receive these funds to work on behalf of those vulnerable to trafficking in some of the toughest places on Earth.
WE RUN so that THEY CAN BE FREE.

Run. Raise. Rescue. Join the movement in 2020 to end sex trafficking in our lifetime.
Modern slavery, including the trafficking of men, women and children, is the human rights issue of our time. As many as 4 million women and children are caught in sexual slavery in our world today. A young girl can be sold for as little as $150 and will often be forced to service at least 10 customers per day, or over 3,000 a year.
Funds raised from 30 for Freedom will further the anti-trafficking work of F.R.E.E. International, Lighthouse Foundation Nepal, and Venture.
It all started with Brent Silkey’s ridiculous vision to get 30 of his friends to run 30 miles, and raise $30,000, on his 30th birthday to help victims of sex trafficking. Brent’s vision inspired hundreds to raise $620,000 in the past four years.
In 2020, we want to engage thousands of participants (runners, walkers, cyclists) through a 5k, 10k, half marathon, 30 mile run to raise $275,000 for sex trafficking prevention, rescue operations, and holistic survivor care.
