We are proud to support the following charities and organizations

Hope Ride for Freedom

Hope Ride is a four-day, 300 mile, cycling event from Jacksonville, Florida to Palm Beach Gardens, Florida with the goal of raising awareness and funding to aid in the fight against human trafficking. In partnership with Christ Fellowship Church, all proceeds from Hope Ride will benefit A21 which is one of the largest organizations in the world fighting human trafficking. When you give to my fundraising page, your donation will go towards A21 Rescue initiatives, including things like:- Providing translation services for 24/7 human trafficking hotlines- Sending social workers to care for exploited children- Investing in legal support for survivors to bring their traffickers to justice. Your funds could mean the difference between a life held in captivity and a life that is free. I invite you to join me in giving what you can, where you can.
