Break The Cycle 200
What is Break The Cycle 200?
Break The Cycle 200 (BTC 200) uses two hundred mile bike rides, run relays and other endurance events to create awareness and raise funds to help those caught in the horrible reality of human trafficking in the U.S. and around the World.
The problem is global with 40+ mil entrapped in modern forms of slavery, including sex slavery. In the US, a child is exploited for sex trafficking every 2 min (US Department of Justice). It’s around the world and in our back yard.
Our participants are signing up to join the fight against modern slavery by giving voice to the issue and raising funds that help rescue and restore real victims in the US and around the world.
We ask that you raise a minimum of $500 and every dollar raised will go straight to help our efforts to end modern slavery. Don’t worry, we will give you resources and a platform to raise your support online.
We do tough things for people in tough places.
