Sparrow's Hope Vision

Sparrow’s Hope is an effort to address the issue of human trafficking. We run; that’s what we do! I thought why not use running as a unique niche to help draw attention to this epidemic around the world. Our vision is to run the Indian 2 million steps (1000 miles) in 2017, to run the Indian 1 million steps (500 miles) in 2018, run from Dayton to Toledo in September of 2018 and to run every Saturday night shining our lights in inner city neighborhoods in Columbus distributing hugs, prayer support, information about options available and purses with feminine hygiene items. In addition, we invite you to consider joining our next expedition in January/February 2019. For More information, sign up on our volunteer page. The running efforts are meant to promote education and help facilitate preventative and after care programs in India (ranked as #1 offender in the world) and the State of Ohio (ranked #4 offender in the United States).

Join Us For Our India Expeditions?



  • In 2017 our team traveled 1000 miles from Mumbai to Chennai as we ran the distance in 34 days speaking at schools and universities about the issue of human trafficking. In 2018 our team ran and biked 500 miles from Chennai to Kovalam in 15 days speaking to thousands of students. We thank the Rotary Clubs of India for taking an interest in this issue and sponsoring our dinners and lodging. We thank Indian local and state police for escorting us and many newspapers and local news stations for covering our efforts to draw awareness of human slavery. In January/February 2019 we hope to cover 750 miles running/biking from Guntur to Kolkata.
