JONESBORO, ARKANSAS, April 20, 2024 - Hope Found of Northeast Arkansas' 4th Annual Ridge Against Trafficking will occur on Saturday, June 1, 2024.

"This annual event helps raise awareness and funds to help us provide case management and long-term advocacy services to victims of human trafficking and also helps us to educate the community," says Megan Brown, Hope Found Executive Director.

The ride will start and end at the pavilion behind Central Baptist Church located at 3707 Harrisburg Road in Jonesboro. Previously, the event was geared towards bikers but will expand this year to include cyclists, including children. With this addition, Ride Against Trafficking will include a 1.5 to 2-hour route for bikers, a choice of a 25-mile or 50-mile route for cyclists, and a family fun ride on the paved path around Central Baptist Church. All rides are followed by a BBQ lunch for all participants.

Bikers and cyclists will follow two separate routes through NEA, where they will learn facts about human trafficking and participate in a dice run. Participants will roll dice at check-in, at 3 locations along their route, and the end of their route. Each roll's results are recorded, and their total is tallied at the end. The winners with the highest number receive $100, and the lowest number receive $50.

Biker and cyclist registration is $20, with a $10 charge for an extra rider on motorcycles. For the family fun ride around Central Baptist Church, adults are $10, and children ride free, but donations are welcome.
