STOP the Traffick 2018 – Thank you!

Thank you so much for your support of our 3rd Annual STOP the Traffick 5k. Together, you raised US$48,700 [AU$66,800] to stop Nepali women and girls from becoming victims of trafficking. Each year is bigger and better and this year was certainly a testament to amazing leaders across the globe who stood up and said ‘I’m against trafficking, who’s with me?’

53 teams registered across 12 countries during September 2018.

Australia  | USA  |  New Zealand  |  China  | Ukraine  | Vietnam  |  Thailand  |  Ireland Philippines  |  Canada  |  Japan  | Kenya

This year, we saw 9 school communities from across the globe come together and run to say NO to trafficking. We also had 10 clubs and office teams representing the corporate and social sectors. It’s amazing to see the networking of individuals who are passionate about joining the fight against human trafficking.

Thank you to all those who RAN, WALKED and CYCLED to make a difference in the life of vulnerable women and girls. You may never meet them, but each of the 450 girls who’s lives will be impacted because of your generosity say ‘thank you for not forgetting about us’.

Thank you to our on-the-ground partners 3 Angels Nepal, Tiny Hands Nepal and Honor 100 Movement Philippines who are on the front line in the fight against trafficking.

Date: Anytime during MAY 2019. (Note that our new global event month is in MAY starting 2019)

Registrations for next year’s event will open in March 2019.
