      PRESS RELEASE

      Winning the fight against sex trafficking one life at a time.
      ”“Race for Their Lives”
      Finger Lakes, NY, May 21, 2020

      The Potter’s Hands Foundation, a local 501c3 non-profit organization serving victims of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation, is hosting a virtual race to benefit the women we serve.

      Participants will pay a $38 registration fee. The number 38 is significant because it represents the number of convicted traffickers who are women. Many female traffickers actually start out as trafficking victims themselves, and as they are indoctrinated by their traffickers, they are convinced to go along with everything they say and do getting caught up in that lifestyle. It becomes their new normal. They find themselves trying to please their traffickers which leads to the traumatization of others.

      We are inviting participants to choose their own method of exercise and then tag their friends via social media challenging them to join in this challenge. If you just want to make a donation, you can do that, too!
      Every registrant will receive a t-shirt to wear during their workout. We ask that they take a photo of themselves and tag us on social media which creates an even greater awareness for this great cause. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook to see snippets of resident’s stories along with other helpful information as we continue educating people about the horrific crime of trafficking.

      Registration opens Friday, May 22 and will run through July 4...representing a race for their freedom. To register for the race: https://www.thepottershandsfoundation.org/events/race-for-their-lives
      With all of our fundraisers postponed or canceled, we are hopeful that our community will continue to support our work as they have been doing since 2013.

      Please join us in the fight against trafficking and “Race for Their Lives”!
