The number of minutes in every day that a human trafficking victim is enslaved, and the same number of minutes we are free. What will you do with yours?

Join Love Runs and become part of the movement to end human trafficking in Metro Detroit. We'll train for the Detroit Free Press Marathon 5K, Half-Marathon, and Full Marathon on October 20-21. All funds raised stay local to Metro Detroit and will go directly to anti-trafficking initiatives that help in the awareness, prevention, rescue, and restoration of trafficking victims in our local area.
