The Ride 2017

Chuseok: October 6 – 9, 2017

We are excited this year because the Chuseok red days allow us to hold the Ride while avoiding the actual Chuseok holiday! You can spend time with family and join with us on this four-day journey in pursuit of God’s heart for justice. We believe it will change your life and perspective in being salt and light! The grueling ride from Busan to Seoul reminds us that the fight against human trafficking requires long-suffering commitment.
