Barefoot Mile – Walk for Freedom
Join your community for the Orlando Barefoot Mile!
The Barefoot Mile is a 1 mile barefoot walk to Fight4Freedom for those trapped in human trafficking both locally and globally.
Human trafficking is the fastest growing crime in the world today, an annual $150 billion dollar industry. It is the third largest international criminal industry. Two million children are exploited every year in the global commercial sex trade. These crimes are not just being committed internationally, it is happening right here in Orlando too.
The funds raised will assist in the rescue, restoration, reintegration and prevention of human trafficking in Orlando, the U.S. and internationally.
Saturday, February 2nd
Lake Eola (Washington Plaza)
Registration begins at 9am
Walk begins at 10am
The cost to participate is $25 per person (12 and under walk free) and includes a t-shirt and swag bag. Each participant is asked to set a goal of raising $100 to Fight4Freedom on behalf of those caught in human trafficking. The goal is to have 300 participants walk in the Barefoot Mile with each participant engaging in the peer-to-peer fundraiser.
