On Friday, June 26th , my friends in Iowa are cycling 200 miles in one day to help end modern-day slavery. I joined their ride 2 years ago and it was monumental. With that being said, I can't currently travel to Iowa - so I'm going BIG another way - indoors, on ZWIFT. Previously, the most I have done in one day on ZWIFT was 120 miles. On Friday, June 26th my goal is 200 miles - Lord willing.
Here's what this is all about:
– The human slavery index estimates 45 million are victims of human trafficking worldwide. About 14 times the total population of the state of Iowa.
– Approximately 75-80% of human trafficking is for sex.
– 80% of those sold into sexual slavery are under 24, some are as young as six years old.
– An estimated 30,000 victims of sex trafficking die each year from abuse, disease, torture & neglect.
With your help, we can help recover and restore trafficking victims and survivors.
