Runners and walkers in The Red Run Algonquin, Illinois are taking a stand against child slavery and exploitation. I am participating in the The Red Run on August 10, 2013 in support of the Red Dress Foundation, which provides a wonderful service to those in need. The Red Dress Foundation supports the following organizations at the front lines in the fight against human trafficking.
These organizations provide prevention, outreach and after care for those who are victims of sex trafficking and exploitation.
- The Salvation Army PROMISE (Partnership to Rescue our Minors from Sexual Exploitation.)
- Love146 a U.S. 501 non-profit international human rights organization that works to abolish child sex trafficking and exploitation through advocacy, prevention, and after care.
- The Dreamcatcher Foundation an organization fighting to end human trafficking in Chicago.
The Red Dress Foundation, founded by Cortina Nystad, left, and Kristen Guerrieri, is 501(c)3 non profit organization taking a stand against child sex trafficking. This Daily Herald article tells The Red Run story.
I challenged myself to raise $1000 in much-needed funds to support this worthy cause, and with your help, we can both make a difference! Will you sponsor me by making a tax-deductible donation today? You can give online quickly and easily here:

Your gift will make a big difference for those who depend on the support of The Red Dress Foundation. Any amount, large or small, is greatly appreciated. If you would like to walk with me, sign up at The Red Run.
Participants are encouraged to run or walk in a red dress (or anything red) and take a stand against child slavery & exploitation!
The race will be held Saturday August 10th, 2013 in Presidential Park located at 700 Highland Avenue Algonquin, Illinois 60102.
