Stop the Traffick(ing) 5K Walk/Run for Justice
This community-wide event in Eden Prairie blends fitness with awareness-raising of a worthy cause. Human trafficking is a serious, worldwide issue and a form of modern-day slavery. This walk/run 5K seeks to bring community members together to raise awareness, honor those affected by trafficking, and to raise money to charities that combat this dangerous epidemic. All proceeds from the 5K will go towards area organizations that aid in the exploitation of youth at the hands of traffickers the world over.
