In 2020, a group of men made it their mission to help push back the darkness of child sex-trafficking in the St. Louis area. What started as a plan to do a virtual 5K, turned into a weeklong event logging miles anyway we could. Running, cycling, rucking, walking, swimming... whatever floats your boat (as long as you're rowing that boat, we'll count those miles, too.)

Men, women and children ages 5 to 95 from more than 30 states joined forces to raise awareness about a problem in our own backyards. In our first two years, more than 850 participants logged more than 26,000 miles. We've raised more than $161,000 to help underage victims at The Covering House. 

We set some lofty goals in 2021, and fell short. Help us hit those goals this year... 3rd time's the charm!
