Expect to see runners on streets in Hillwood
on Saturday morning
Saturday, May 11, more than 1,000 passionate child advocates will take to the streets of Shoreline for World Concern’s 11th annual S.O.S. 5k to Seek Out and Stop trafficking and raise awareness and funds to fight child trafficking.

Extreme poverty leaves many children in Southeast Asia alone and defenseless, making them primary targets for sexual exploitation and human trafficking.

World Concern works to prevent the trafficking, exploitation, and abuse of children in poor communities by operating a hotline for reporting suspected cases of child endangerment, educating children and parents about the dangers of trafficking, and equipping them with job skills to earn income safely.

“World Concern’s work with children is driven by the fact that the most vulnerable in our world need our protection, particularly our children,” Nick Archer, Vice President of World Concern said. 
“Millions of children remain vulnerable to trafficking due to circumstances beyond their, or even their families, control.”
