TREK TO END TRAFFICKING & Escalante Canyons Marathon, Southern Utah

TREK TO END TRAFFICKING & Escalante Canyons Marathon, Southern Utah

We're TREKKING TO END TRAFFICKING to support O.U.R. rescue missions!


WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP: There are more slaves now than any time in history & a majority are women & children. Human Trafficking will soon pass the drug trade as the fastest growing criminal enterprise. ESCALANTE, Utah is having a series of events in October to raise awareness and funds, to help Operation Underground Railroad with their rescue missions. O.U.R. exists to save children from trafficking, but they can't do it without help. We're TREKKING TO END TRAFFICKING on Oct 10th, 2020. In preparation for the hike, each hiker will be training and fundraising in a team effort to fight human trafficking.


THE TREK: We'll be on a crazy scenic pioneer trail between Boulder & Escalante, with a detour to Phipps Arch and a cave of petroglyphs. The rugged redrock terrain will test our limits and put us in awe of the pioneers! But, the Trek may be easy in comparison to the fundraising each hiker commits to do! This is an informal fundraiser hike with no professional guides. Hikers can join us for all 10 miles, or youth teams can "pass the baton" for 3 segments of the trail. Our path will cross Hwy 12, where we may get to cheer on the marathon runners too! 100% of the donations for the hike will go directly to O.U.R. rescue missions!


ESCALANTE CANYONS MARATHON will also be donating some proceeds! To join this event, or the Half Marathon or Fun Run, please visit EscalanteCanyonsMarathon.com The Fun Run is a great choice for anyone who wishes to participate without being committed to fundraising.


DONATIONS: If you are sponsoring a specific hiker, please no anonymous donations. Leave your name and a note for your hiker, so each will get credit and enjoy a discounted hotel stay when they come to Escalante for the hike. We appreciate all donations big and small that will help fight human trafficking! You can also BUY TREK SHIRTS as a great way to donate, show support for hikers & spread the word! 100% profits donated.



HIKER INFO & REGISTRATION


FUNDRAISING & TRAINING EXPECTIONS: Each hiker will be enthusiastically committed to raise "as much as possible" for O.U.R. A minimum fundraising goal of at least $250 per hiker or $500 per couple (or pair of hikers) is recommended. We encourage bigger goals for bigger results! Larger groups will not be allowed, unless they have an awesome fundraising plan. Creative fundraising could mean offering services (like bake sales or whatever you are good at) for donations, perhaps service projects for donations, maybe even an event. Certainly you'll be talking to everyone you know about Operation Underground Railroad! Teammates agree to train for the 10 mile hike, to share what they are doing with others (on social media etc) & to stay in communication with the team about fundraising efforts.....or possibly be dropped from the hike. Teammates agree to share this O.U.R CAMPAIGN PAGE, so friends and family can donate. Couples or friends should only sign up if both hikers are committed to training and fundraising prior to coming to Escalante.


HOTEL DISCOUNTS: All Trekkers who reach the minimum campaign goal of $250 per person will get a great discount (approx 50% off) at Canyons B&B (or nearby retreat) for 2 nights. Otherwise, full price may apply, so half the cost of your room can be donated.


PRE-RACE DINNER: Hikers will enjoy a pre-race dinner with the marathoners ($10 each). We might also be watching a movie about O.U.R. We'll have an awesome adventure & make new friends while celebrating your hard work fundraising & changing lives forever. Way to vacation with a purpose!


MAX CAPACITY & TEAMS: Groups of 12 hikers max can be on the trail in Grand Staircase National Monument, so there are just 12 tickets. For youth or families, relay teams of 2 or 3 hikers may be allowed, in which case you will only need 1 ticket for your team. Each hiker will hike 1 section while the others help shuttle and explore awesome areas nearby.


START TIME: We'll start shortly after the marathon runners begin their race, around 9:30 AM. If hikers have friends in the Marathon, drop them off in Boulder before 9 AM, then meet your Trekking teammates at a nearby trailhead.


REGISTRATION & MORE INFO. Get more details & REGISTER HERE. Join a waiting list for this year or next. After the spots are filled, our team of hikers will keep in touch by email as we fundraise, train and prepare for the hike. We will work together to make it about the greater purpose!



LIABILITY: Hikers will need to sign a liability form and be responsible for their own training, preparation & hike. This is a personal fundraiser hike, with no paid or professional guides. Volunteers will recommend maps & preparedness items to keep you from getting lost & dehydrated! However, interactions with volunteers, before and during the hike are considered assistance based, as any hiker would offer on the trail. Your actual preparation & safety will be up to you!


OUR 2020 TEAM: Volunteer Guide Bill, Julie & Danny, Keith & Alicia, Samuel & April, Anna & Brian, Andrea, McKenna & Tara; Possible Relay Team Joining Danny - Joette & Karen
