The Stop Traffic Walk raises funds for the nation’s largest human trafficking rescue & rehabilitation operation in North America and also funds the Hope Starts Here program through the Asheville Dream Center. The funds you raise through Stop Traffic Walk will help rescue trafficked individuals and give them the skills necessary to build a strong and vibrant life.
The Stop Traffic Walk event will open at 4PM with climbing wall and games for children, food vendors, entertainment, and more. The walk will take place at 8:00 PM around the perimeter of the complex. It will be less than a mile. This is your time to take a stand for the injustice that is taking place today and also show your support for those who have survived.
