This Saturday from 1 – 4 pm downtown is the 3rd Annual Alaska Barefoot Mile Walk. Join Kelly and I at Town Square!
You can register online if you choose. Suggested donation is $25. Goal is to have 1000 walkers this year. Would you be one? Bring your kids and have a teachable moment.
Here’s an excerpt from their website:
“Human trafficking is the fastest growing crime in the world today.
The Barefoot Mile is a 1-mile barefoot walk where participants stand behind the cause of human trafficking and walk in solidarity with children in poverty, who are the most vulnerable to trafficking. The Barefoot Mile can remind us how effective our community can be when we join for a common goal, which is the safety of innocent individuals.
The success of the Barefoot Mile ensures that awareness of human trafficking is brought to light and the funds raised will assist in the rescue, restoration, reintegration, and prevention of human trafficking in Alaska, the U.S., and Internationally.
In a 2017 survey of homeless youth in 10 cities, Anchorage had the highest reported prevalence of Human Trafficking.”
