“OUR and CLF have rescued and rehabilitated over 1700 children. Our hope is that the Sage Creek Drive in the Desert will raise over $1 million dollars to rescue as many more girls and boys as possible – and inspire good people to get involved to help us unite and abolish slavery as we know it,” said Wayne M. Aston, Developer/CEO of Sage Creek at Moab.
Tim Ballard, CEO and founder of Operation Underground Railroad, added, “OUR’s private donors and corporate partners are essential to funding our work, which involves costly global intelligence gathering and rescue efforts.
