Running To Rescue

Destiny Rescue is dedicated to rescuing children from human trafficking and sexual exploitation.

Here's what they have to say about themselves:

"We help rescue the sexually exploited and enslaved, restore the abused, protect the vulnerable, empower the poor and are a voice for children that can’t speak up for themselves. We provide kids rescued from sexual exploitation a safe, loving home to grow up in, medical care, counseling, schooling, vocational training and all daily needs required to be integrated back into society successfully."

My favorite thing about Destiny Rescue is that they don't just rescue children from the sex trade, they also introduce them to Jesus Christ, the One who can rescue their souls. These children then have the opportunity to be saved in every way a person can possibly be saved.

It costs $1500 to rescue one child from the sex trade. We want to run races to rescue as many kids as we can. The goal is to run the Akron Half or Full Marathon on September 28, 2013, but different team members will be running in multiple races from now until then to train for the big one. Team members may also run races in different parts of the country if they are not from northeast Ohio.

How can you get involved?

There are three different ways you can get invovled. First, you can follow our progress and pray for us as we run to rescue. Follow us on Twitter by using #runningtorescue or like our Facebook page Running To Rescue. Second, you can pick a team member here on this page and donate/sponsor them for the races they run. Third, you can join our team here on Razoo and run with us to rescue! You can send the link for this page out to your friends and family and spread the word! You don't have to be in the northeast Ohio area to do this. You can run wherever you are. Your family and friends can simply come to this page, click on your name and donate on your fundraiser page (you can set up your fundraising page by clicking the fundraiser button to the right). All donations from this team will go directly to Destiny Rescue.

It costs about $1500 to rescue one child from the sex trade. I'd love raise $15,000 - a lofty goal! I believe that "with God, all things are possible" (Mark 10:27), and that God is asking me to help the "least of these" (Matthew 25:40) so I'm going for it. Will you join me?
