Entry #117

South Island race course selected
Masters 1 (all 50 and over), South Island "The Future Rides on us!"

About me

I will be cycling 700kms from 1-8th April in the South Island of the Tour of New Zealand to help fight child sex trafficking.

Human trafficking is a terrible and growing problem in our world but it's the vulnerable poor who are mainly targeted. It really is the exploitation of vulnerability.

An estimated 4.5 million women and children are trafficked into sex slavery.This is approx the population of New Zealand.

The good news is that we are doing something about this and so can you by supporting me. Tearfund is building a community on the move for freedom.

Personally i would like to raise $5,000 which would resource an investigation to resource a brothel raid- locking up the pimp. Please generously support this cause and make our world safer for our children.

The future rides on them!!!

Chosen charity

tearfund

Tearfund. Cycle for Tearfund and you will be joining a community on the move for freedom! Tearfund is a registered charity committed to the cycling space. Child sex trafficking is a scourge devastating an estimated 4.5 million children and shattering vulnerable communities around the world. This is called modern day slavery due to its scale and growth and it needs all of our attention and action.
Sex slavery generates an estimated US$100 billion for criminal networks every year, according to the International Labour Organisation (ILO). By joining Tearfund you will join the fight for freedom helping our full circle approach bringing: prevention/protection, rescue and prosecution and of course restoration and empowerment. Last year our partner Nvader, a 100% Kiwi led team, were responsible for over 50% of Thailand's human trafficking convictions. You'll be supporting an effective team bringing results and changing lives and you'll get to meet Ralph Simpson a Kiwi lawyer who now leads the Nvader team as country director.
