Carroll University's 27-hour swing-a-thon raising money for victims of human trafficking
Event runs from Thursday morning to Friday afternoon
If you happen to drive by Carroll University Thursday morning, afternoon, night and even early Friday morning and see people swinging on swings, it’s OK.
That’s because Carroll University students are conducting a 27-hour swing-a-thon to raise funds for the Milwaukee-based organization, Exploit No More, which provides services to victims of human trafficking.
According to a news release, two swings will be set up on the lawn in front of Main Hall for the event, “Swinging for Change.” It runs from 9 a.m. Thursday to noon Friday.
The 27-hour duration represents the estimated 27 million people enslaved in the world, the release says.
In addition to students and other faculty, Carroll President Doug Hastad and Theresa Barry, vice president of student affairs, will participate in the event.
Exploit No More provides counseling and social services for young girls who are victims of human trafficking in the Milwaukee area.
The event was organized by Carroll University’s Residence Life and Housing Staff.
