When you commit to raising funds for a Barefoot Mile, you commit to changing the life of a trafficked child, teen or young woman. Through the Barefoot Mile you will raise much needed awareness and funds for JOY International and Street Light NC , a local organization providing resources and support to women in crisis, especially those in the adult entertainment industry. JOY International works to rescue, restore and reintegrate children, teens and young women who have been victims of sex trafficking. JOY also tirelessly works to not only bring awareness to, but actively prevent the sexual exploitation of children domestically and internationally.
Every Barefoot Mile represents a community's commitment to walk in solidarity with trafficked children, who so desperately need someone to stand on their behalf.
Precious children, teens and young women will be rescued as a result of every single walk. Each and every step is a step toward freedom. Join us in the fight for JOY in each of these precious lives.
