Sadly human trafficking is a very real issue.

Every 30 seconds someone becomes a victim of human trafficking.

Many of these victims are children who are sold into sex trafficking.

Let that sink in, then get ready to take a stand.

Running 2 Rescue is a family friendly event that helps to raise money and bring awareness to this human tragedy.

Saturday, June 2 beginning at 8:00 a.m. Lubbock will host a R2R event at MacKenzie Park.

This will be a family friendly event with a 1 mile family run, a 5k and 10k run for the more experienced athletes.

Regardless of whether you come out to run the 10 or 5k events or sign up to do the 1 mile and walk, make plans to join in on this event to help raise awareness and money for this worth while cause.
