Insanity4Humanity Meets the Midwest Emmys!

Last night, a small portion of the Insanity4Humanity team was fortunate enough to attend the Upper Midwest Emmys at the Radisson Blu.  KSMQ (Stephanie Passingham, Kevin Hanson, and Matthew Bluhm), who did a phenomenal 'Off 90' piece of the 300M4Freedom campaign, was nominated for 'Public/Current/Community Affairs' Emmy for their great work.  It was a surreal experience that we will never forget, and we are extremely grateful to KSMQ for the work they did, the awareness they brought to our cause, and the invitation to this event.  And although their names were not called out when the winners were announced, the impact their project had was much, much larger than the statue that was handed out.

Grand Rapids Media and 300M4Freedom

Human trafficking is a massive problem – and is a lot closer to home than many may think. According to 300M4FREEDOM.com, more than 100,000 American citizen children are exploited through sex trafficking annually, without crossing national borders. That is why triathlete and Grand Rapids native Kelly Nesvold is doing what he can to raise awareness for the cause by running a 300-mile race, titled 300M4FREEDOM. 

KTTC Talks 300M4Freedom

Austin chiropractor Kelly Nesvold will attempt a 300-mile triathlon to raise money and help combat human trafficking.

"The typical reaction is that I'm crazy," said Nesvold. "So they say, 'Are you nuts?'"

Nesvold will start from his hometown of Grand Rapids, Minn. at noon on Friday, Aug. 26. He will then swim five miles, bike 240 miles, and run the remaining 55 miles back to Austin.
