A21 // 11 days to raise awareness!
In 2008, Nick and Christine Caine founded The A21 Campaign, an anti-human-trafficking organization that is dedicated to abolishing slavery in the 21st century. A21 has a global presence around the world with offices in Greece, Ukraine, Bulgaria, United Kingdom, Australia, USA and South Africa. The A21 Campaign’s comprehensive approach includes raising awareness, preventing future trafficking, taking legal action and providing rehabilitation services for survivors.

The A21 Campaign's 'Freedom Challenge' is 11 days to raise awareness of human trafficking!
The course for FREEDOM CHALLENGE covers 10 countries in Eastern Europe, including 1250km of difficult terrain and steep climbs. This is a unique opportunity to raise awareness in some of the highest rated human trafficking source countries in the world.
The race starts in Sofia, Bulgaria, on October 6, 2013, with their core team of determined cyclists, and will finish Wednesday, October 16, in London, UK.
