Every 98 seconds another person experiences sexual assault. While Human Trafficking is not a clone of sexual assault, they link in many ways as in both cases; victims are subjected to sexual exploitation or forced prostitution.
Cry Heard Inc. is a non-profit organization (receives all monies only by tax deductible donations) works towards breaking the silence of sexual assault, human trafficking, and pornography addiction, through publications, public awareness campaigns, and special events.
Cry Heard Support Inc., Board members, volunteers, and many others laced up our running shoes to participate in the Cry Heard Support Inc., first annual “Walk towards the Cry 5K Run/Walk”.
The event was held on June 24, 2017, at El Dorado Park in Long Beach, California. The goal was to raise funds to increase awareness and prevention of Sexual Assault and Human Trafficking while supporting those victimized individuals help hostage for exploitation (those individuals can be as young as 12 years old).
It was a beautiful day and to be our first 5 K run/walk event; it was a wonderfully successful event. With close to 100 runners and walkers we are looking to triple that amount next year.
On behalf of our Board of Directors; we want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all our participants (Runners, walkers).
Trina Johnson, thank you for your vital assistance with our advertisement development.
To all our Volunteers, Whitney Key Club Volunteers, Teen Reach, you touched our hearts.
Allison Hampton, your singing of the National Anthem, was spectacular during our pre-race program!
We would further like to thank the following organization:
· Dr. Rhonda Hampton, of Reach for Mental Health
· Kim Lynch-Howard, Rise Up from Adversities Inc. Thank you so much.

The Fundraising event to help us combat Sexual Assault and Human Trafficking would not have been the success that it was without the financial partnership and sponsorship of:

· Young Connection Printing
· Thompson Trophies
· L.A. Focus
