Destiny Rescue walk to save exploited kids
Hundreds of people will walk 6km along the Redcliffe foreshore on Sunday in a bid to stop child exploitation in third world countries.
A group of passionate volunteers including Jenny Gynther, Marnie Bartlett, Jodie Marshall and Madisson Spencer have organised a charity walk starting at Redcliffe Surf Life Saving Club at Suttons Beach with the aim of raising $10,000 for charity, Destiny Rescue.
The charity is a Christian-based organisation dedicated to rescuing children from human trafficking and sexual exploitation in India, Cambodia, Thailand, Laos and Philippines.
Destiny Rescue support manager for Queensland Tegan Barnes said the Walk for a Purpose event aimed to “raise enough money to rescue and rehabilitate two children”.
“This is an advocate-run event. Their idea was to hold Walk for a Purpose as a way of rallying the community to walk for justice and make a stand against child exploitation.”
The walk is on Saturday, July 30 from 3-5pm. Entry costs $30 per person or $50 for a family of two adults and two children. To purchase tickets, visit eventbrite.com and search for “Walk for a Purpose”.
