A Campaign to Fight Human Trafficking

The mission of Texas Annual Conference, Center for Missional Excellence is making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world to the glory of God. Therefore, we are focusing our 2017 efforts to make a difference in the fight against human trafficking.

Over 200,000 U.S. youth and young adults are at risk of being enslaved in sex trafficking each year. 68% of young people who run away or are otherwise on the streets are picked up by traffickers within 48 hours of being on the streets

  • There are over 83,000 labor and sex trafficking victims in Texas every year   |  There are over 20,000 labor and sex trafficking victims in Houston every year
  • There are over 450,000 labor and sex trafficking victims in the U.S. every year   |   There are over 21 million sex and labor trafficking victims in the world each year.

25% of all trafficking victims are children

Join our team for one of our events. Together we can make a difference in ending human trafficking. Texas Annual Conference is a 501(c )3 nonprofit organization – check us out at www.txcumc.org
 

About This Activity

Join us for the 9th Annual BUFFALO STAMPEDE Half Marathon & 5K Races designed for ALL runners! These Chrono timed races use disposable bib tags on USATF Certified courses benefitting the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History. All Sports Timing is conducting the race and race results will be available at www.allsportstiming.com.

The Half-Marathon course is gently rolling, scenic, relatively flat, fast, and takes you through open country and past neighborhoods and parks. It has a downhill 2-mile finish, and offers you a great chance for a PR and a tune-up for marathons.The 5K follows the first 1.55 miles of the Half-Marathon course. Courses are out and back and offer a safe route well marked by N-Line Traffic Management.  Cheer Stations will be along the route to encourage you...with cash prizes going to the best stations!  The Course closes at 11am. 

These are beautiful courses, well organized safe runs with water stops, porta johns, great running music, cool T-shirts for all, fabulous half-marathon & 5K finisher medals and custom buffalo age group awards, and post-race refreshments. Meet our celebrity starter and look for our Bison mascot! AFTER the race, enjoy Boonville Days, a heritage festival with chuck wagons, booths of frontier skills, art, and music.
