WHY BE INVOLVED?
In excess of 15,000 – 20,000 Nepali women and children (mostly girls) will be the unwilling victims of human trafficking this year. Our partners believe the real stats could be 5 times higher.
Girls will be tricked into migrating out of Nepal chasing the promise of a better life – instead being sold into slavery and abuse.
For many women and children this year – their dreams will turn to nightmares.
If you are as appalled as we are you can do something about it, anytime between September 2 - 10, 2017, all are invited to join our worldwide Stop the Traffick 5K! Get as many people as you can to run or walk ANYWHERE, ANYTIME between September 2 - 10, 2017 and unite with us to stop human trafficking.
Funds from this event will help support the incredible work of our partners in Nepal -3 Angels Nepal and Tiny Hands International. This year we're also thrilled to welcome supporters from ICC Australia who will be joining this event to raise funds to stop human trafficking in the Philippines.

Want to run in a group?
Fantastic. The more the merrier. Create a team name when you register and encourage your friends to register in your team and wear red on the day. We encourage all participants to get as many people to run as they can. This will make it enjoyable for everyone while raising as much funding as possible.
I want to organize a group in my local area.
