Great job in 2013!

Miles for Freedom
Miles for Freedom

In 2013 we had all types of people come out in support. Gem City Derby Girls and guys came out in full derby gear to complete 7.2 miles. One pastor from Apex Community Church, Jason Wing, encouraged 30 people to walk/run 2.4 miles totaling 72 miles. Another youth group walked silently in solemn memory of the 27 million. Pro Inline Skaters from GA, Ohio and Indiana participated in the full 72 distance in rainy cold conditions. Other participants combined sports to challenge their bodies to go the maximum distance. One lady even came from Alaska to cycle the 72 miles! It’s up to you how many miles your team completes. The point is to take a stand for freedom while raising awareness and funds for those who have limited freedoms.
