Hope for Justice is an anti-human trafficking, non-profit organisation centered in Manchester that exists to rescue and support victims of trafficking and end slavery in the UK.
You may remember The Zoe Challenge from May of this year. The Zoe Challenge was birthed from Hope for Justice’s desire to support victims of human trafficking. Tom Lister, Ben Cooley, James Altham, and Gavin Murray cycled 2700 km from Latvia to the UK – the same route Zoe traveled when trafficked out of Latvia to Southampton – in just 20 days as a means of raising awareness and gaining funds to assist the mission of Hope for Justice.
Now a team of four more men are taking on another unique physical challenge in the name of ending slavery:
“Tough Mudder are known for insane endurance courses all over the world, and Chubby Bald Monkey thought we could take one on (fools). So, what better way to motivate ourselves than to raise funds for Hope For Justice, a charity working hard to stop the trafficking of humans for the purpose of modern-day slavery and sexual exploitation.
There are tens of millions of victims of human trafficking all over the world. It is the fastest-growing criminal industry on the planet – worth $32 billion, more than the profits of Google, Apple and Starbucks combined – from babies and children, to young women and men. So for the cause, and for our insanity, please dig deep and donate now!
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity” (Adam Morris).
To participate in this fundraiser, access the Just Giving link above. The target amount is £500.00. (Donations are not limited to one currency.)
