Choate Construction – one of Southeast Georgia’s largest general contractors – has announced that it will be the title sponsor of the upcoming 2022 Street Grace 5K race.
The annual run, now in its fifth year, was launched by Street Grace to support the organization’s ongoing efforts to bring freedom to child victims of sex trafficking.
Street Grace executive director Camila Zolfaghari said the organization appreciated Choate Construction’s involvement in the race.
“Choate’s sponsorship and support is a key factor in working to help protect vulnerable children from predators and bring freedom and restoration to those who have been exploited,” Zolfaghari said. “We are grateful to those who, like Choate, join us in running for freedom and allowing this work to continue.”
Street Grace was founded in 2009. It was created by leaders of Atlanta’s faith-based community in response to the commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) that was on the rise in the city.
According to the press release, approximately 374 girls are commercially sexually exploited each month in Georgia. Further, it also states that 12,400 men in Georgia pay monthly to have sex with a young woman and 7,200 of them end up exploiting a teenage girl.
To increase its efforts in tackling the problem of child sex trafficking in Georgia, Street Grace and Georgia Cares of Atlanta announced a merger in 2020.
The 2022 Street Grace 5K race will take place on October 15-16. Because the race is done virtually, participants can choose their preferred route.
