Donate to WIN

With the help of local businesses, PHIL collected over $800 worth of gifts to be given away at the end of the race by random drawing. Anyone donating $10 or more to this ASK campaign through September 8 at 11:00 am will be entered in the drawing for the prize giveaway.

The Goal

HER Campaign is partnering with PHIL to help raise $40,000 in HER Campaign’s second annual event, Run for HER 5K run. All proceeds go towards providing restoration for victims of sexual exploitation through safe housing and support services.

HER Campaign is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that exists to provide holistic restoration for victims of sexual exploitation.  They provide a safe house, trauma-informed care, resources to therapy, education, and job opportunities for victims of domestic violence, sexual abuse, and sex trafficking.

Since its foundation in 2016 by Sammy & Britney Higgs in Billings, Montana, HER Campaign has counted solely on contributions from individuals and organizations to provide 24/7 support, renewal and hope to women escaping trafficking and exploitation. In addition to maintaining safe housing, residents also receive therapy, coaching, and other services to aid in recovery and ensure personal success after leaving the program.

“HER Campaign’s goal is to see these women on the road to recovery and personal success to keep themselves independent and safe once they leave our program,” says Higgs.

About the Race for HER 5k Walk/Run

The Run for HER 5k race will take place on September 8 in Billings, Montana, starting at Josephine Crossing at 9am. The race is a walk/run event making it inclusive and supportive for families with young children and strollers as well as people of all abilities.

Food and drink trucks will be on site at Josephine Crossing’s Amphitheater for participants and supporters after the race where HER Campaign organizers will speak and announce prizes for winners in each gender division.

Help us Raise $40,000

In addition to the race, HER Campaign has partnered with PHIL to raise $40,000 for much needed improvements and expansion to the program.

“There’s such a dire need for safe places for these women to go,” says Britney Higgs, co-founder of HER Campaign, “Funds from this event will enable us to bolster safehouse security systems, increase staffing and provide safe transportation to accommodate more residents.”
