Thanks to Pastor Clint Loveall from the First Presbyterian Church in Spirit Lake for speaking to us on the subject of  Human Trafficking. Human Trafficking is the fastest growing criminal activity in the United States and is second in profitability only to drugs.  A runaway in Iowa will be approached within 72 hours by a human trafficker.    
Clint participates in a 200 mile bike ride from Des Moines to Okoboji every year to help raise funds and awareness for this global problem. The OKO 200 "Stop The Traffic" ride this year will take place on June 22, 2018.  Approximatley 40 people make the trek at an aggressive 18 mph stopping just a few times along the way.   Another group of cyclists leaves Minneapolis at about the same time to end in Okoboji as well.  If you are interested in hosting some cyclists overnight, please contact Pastor Clint Loveall at the First Presbyterian Church in Spirit Lake.
