Westmont High School student Heather Blaney has organized a special event to bring attention to the tragic reality of human trafficking. Last year, the WHS Junior organized a panel discussion on the topic which included members of the FBI and a human trafficking survivor. This year, Heather has organized a 5K Color Run/Walk called The Color Stomp.
The goal of the project is to "stomp out" human trafficking and shed light on this dark issue, which affects 27 million people across the globe. Proceeds from the event will help Reclaim13 open Cherish House. Cherish House is an envisioned long-term, trauma-informed, residential treatment facility dedicated to helping victims of human trafficking. The Color Stomp will take place May 17 at Ty Warner Park. Registration from 7:30-8:45 a.m. and the race will start at 9 a.m. To register online, click on the link below.
