Pure Religion 5K to Help Stamp Out Human Trafficking
Saturday, April 21, 2018
Central Church Charlotte Campus
The 8th Annual Pure Religion 5K was a great event, with hundreds turning out to promote awareness and fight against human trafficking. The event raised more than $100,000, with all proceeds from this event go to organizations working to eradicate human trafficking in the Charlotte area and around the world.
There are millions enslaved worldwide – more than at any point in human history. After drug trafficking, human trafficking, or modern-day slavery, is the second-largest criminal industry in the world. Most can’t imagine the horror of a 12-year-old being sold, yet there are an estimated 100,000 minors trapped in sex trafficking in the United States alone.
Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress, and refusing to let the world corrupt you. - James 1:27
