Your donations support:
Donations given toward the 2024 team goal between January and August will support prevention work and survivor services at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children and programs for our Community Grant recipients. From September - January, all donations will go toward the Pedal the Pacific program.
Funds are split equally between both organizations
As the nation's clearinghouse and comprehensive reporting center for all issues related to the prevention of and recovery from child victimization, NCMEC leads the fight against abduction, abuse, and exploitation - because every child deserves a safe childhood.
Each summer as our teams bike down the West coast, we connect with communities through partnerships with local organizations and experts raising awareness about sex trafficking. In order to support these communities even further, organizations along our route have the opportunity to receive a $5,000 grant towards their anti-trafficking programming.
The Refuge for DMST™ (Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking) is a non-profit organization that has developed The Refuge Ranch, a long-term, residential, therapeutic community for 48 girls, minors through age 19, who have been recovered from sex traffickers. The Refuge Ranch is the largest long-term, live-in rehabilitation facility for child survivors of sex trafficking in the United States.
