About This Activity

Did you know that modern-day slavery is not only alive, but thriving across the United States? The Heritage Dash 4 Dignity is raising awareness of modern-day slavery and funds to bring sexually exploited women and children into freedom.  Proceeds from this race will support the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), the leading nonprofit organization in the U.S. working with law enforcement, families and those professionals engaged in issues related to missing and sexually exploited children (www.missingkids.com)

This is a stroller and pet friendly event.

Stay tuned for more information as we get closer to April 18th.  Please let me know if you have questions before hand.  Together we can bring freedom to human trafficking survivors.

We look forward to seeing you on April 18th
