BEMIDJI, Minn. (AP) - Seven students from St. Cloud State University are planning a 221-mile run across Minnesota to raise awareness in the fight against human trafficking.
A Bemidji Pioneer report says the students will begin Sunday in Watertown, S.D., and end in Prescott, Wis., on July 4. One of the runners is 22-year-old Courtney Passa of Bemidji. She says she's not a practiced long-distance runner but she's willing to make herself temporarily uncomfortable to help those who are suffering daily. Each runner is raising nearly $2,600. The money will be donated to a group that works in southeast Asia, where human trafficking of underage girls has been a growing problem.
Along the run the students will stay at churches and visit community groups to rally support for the cause.
