LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Human trafficking affects 27 million people around the world. This 'modern day slavery' can be prevented, by making information and resources available to hold those responsible.
One group that is working to do that is "PATH," or Partners Against Trafficking Humans.
This weekend, they're hosting a 5K on May 18 at Two Rivers Park at 8 a.m.; all money raised will benefit the organization and the fight against human trafficking.
For more information on the 5K event or PATH, contact Jan Parks at (501) 231-8743. Those who are interested in the race can register ahead of time by logging onto ArkansasRunner.com or sign up the day of the race.
