Stop Child Trafficking Stiletto Run and 5k

September 24th 2011

Our Team the "Royal Pains"

Child Trafficking is one of the fastest growing crimes in the world. With over 2 million children victims, UNICEF estimates that every year this horrific crime is a $12 billion market.
When I heard the statistics, I had to get involved. This is my second year with this organization, which was brought to Denver by two very passionate and extremely hard working women, Jolene Picone and Julia Gentry. They had met Lynette Lewis who is the founder of SCTnow at a convention where they heard her speak so eloquently about the topic.
Last year was the first year SCTnow was brought to Denver and we organized the Stiletto Run and 5k run/walk, the first ever Denver Stiletto race. It was a HUGE success raising over $40,000 our first year.
This year almost didn't happen with our venue sponsor, Six Flags-Elitch Gardens, pulling out two months before the event. We were fortunate enough to relocate the race only weeks before the event to Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City. Even though we were unable to promote or market our event like we had the previous year, we still had around 200 racers. We are looking forward to partnering with Dick's again next year and building on our already amazing sponsor list
