Human trafficking is the illegal trade in human beings for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation or forced labor. Around the world, 1.2 million children are trafficked each year, 17,500 in the United States. In 2012, nearly 50 commercially exploited children were identified and rescued in the Denver metropolitan area. Set Them Free’s mission is to provide necessary support and resources for trafficking survivors. Its goal for the 2014 off-road event is to raise $30,000 to help save lives and increase awareness.
$50/vehicle and driver; $25/passengers or additional drivers ages 21+; $20/passenger ages 12-20; FREE for riders 11-years and younger. Visit http://www.stfoffroad.org/ to register.
