Run to Fight Human Trafficking Coming to Tri-Cities September 28th

Run to Stop Trafficking
(Tri-City Soroptomist International)

Human trafficking is something we often think only happens in other parts of the world or larger U.S. cities.  That would be wrong!

This growing problem surfaced recently in the Mid-Columbia, as Kennewick police investigating an assault found evidence of such activity in the Tri-Cities.  A female victim gave police evidence and testimony that her attackers were linked to a ring that attempted to lure women into prostitution. The victims were taken to Seattle and trafficked to other Northwest cities for similar purposes.

Human trafficking is basically a  21st. century version of slavery, where women are either lured or forcibly taken into prostitution or other illegal and dangerous activities and often sold for cash!

The Tri-Cities Soroptomist International Chapter invites you to help by taking part in the Run to Stop Human Trafficking, September 28th.

The 5K Run-Walk will start at the Columbia Point Marina Shelter #1 in Richland, with check-in and on-site registration at 7:30am with the race at 8:30.   Pre-registration is highly recommended by going to their website.

Pre-registration fee is $10,  raceday registration is $15.  Includes a t-shirt, and children under 15 can participate for free.
