30 for Freedom is a movement that exists to end sex trafficking in our lifetime.
It all started when God gave me, Brent Silkey, a dream to run 30 miles on my 30th birthday, to invite 30 friends to do it with me, so we could raise $30k to rescue victims out of sex trafficking because every 30 seconds somebody becomes a victim of human trafficking.
The first year we had 48 runners do the full 30 miler and 75 run a shorter version at the 5k distance. $81,346 was raised!
Last year in 2017, Gov. Dayton proclaimed May 27. 2017 was “30 for Freedom Day” in Minnesota. We had eight chapters with over 600 participants who ran/walked a 5k, half marathon, or 30 mile run. We were in four countries and over $176K was raised!
In 2018, we are aiming to engage over 1,000 participants to raise $250,000 for sex trafficking prevention, rescue operations, and restoration efforts through our missions partners both domestically and abroad.
