Step inside out to fund freedom
We are challenging everyone who wants to live in a world free from slavery to join in this year’s Hope Challenge by running or walking 20 miles but with a twist… your clothes have to be INSIDE OUT!
Do a solo challenge, or get a group together… you could run, bike, hike or march the miles all at once, or spread them out over a few days… set your own time targets or increase the distance to push your limits… the one condition is your clothes have to be INSIDE OUT.
What is INSIDE OUT about?
As well as raising awareness, Hope Challenge INSIDE OUT is a great way to raise vital funds to help us see more people rescued and restored from human trafficking. We are asking you to wear your heart on your sleeve, to show the world that you want to make a difference.
This 20 mile challenge can take any shape or form – feel free to use your creativity! You could bike, hike or march the miles as one event or spread them out over a number of outdoor excursions. Feel free to set your own time targets or increase the distance to push your physical limits!
When you sign up you will be sent a free Fundraising Pack full of tips, inspiration and advice for when you #StepInsideOut, and all the resources you need to have a fun, successful, impactful Hope Challenge!
Why take part?
This year’s theme is INSIDE OUT because modern slavery is a hidden crime and we want you to not only take a stand against it, but to stand out! Help ensure people take notice and learn more about this issue. We are asking you to wear your heart on your sleeve, to show the world your passion and that you want to make a difference.
Many people believe slavery is a thing of the past, safely confined to history. But there are actually more than 40 million people trapped in slavery around the globe today. This exploitation of human beings is generating $150 billion a year in illegal profits for criminals. And yet less than one per cent are rescued. More needs to be done to help those who are often powerless to help themselves.
Our heart is for the oppressed, to see justice, to give hope, to bring freedom.
We are asking you to join with us. We are inviting people of all ages and abilities to stand up for justice, to step into action – to #StepInsideOut – to stamp out slavery.
Who can take part?
Anyone of any age can take part in INSIDE OUT, either individually or as part of a group.* Team up with friends or family to spur one another on!
If a physical or outdoors event is not right for you, there are so many other ways you can fundraise, either outdoors or indoors – drop us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would love to help you out with some ideas.
*We ask that you do so following all government safety guidelines where you live
