Edie Owens Running with Heart & HopeMiles for Hope 2021
I have always had a heart for missing and exploited children. When I was 9 years old, a local girl (who lived about 5 hours away from me) went missing. This impacted me greatly because it was the first time I knew of a missing child. Children should be safe and protected from the evils of this world, and fundraising/running for NCMEC and the work they do is one way that I can give back.
I am running to support nonprofits like NCMEC so they can more effectively provide support, services, and resources to families, rescued children, and law enforcement.
It is my heart’s desire to see every child returned to their family or placed in a loving environment where they can fully realize their potential.
