JENKS, Okla. - With human trafficking an ever-growing concern in Oklahoma, a Jenks-based organization dedicated to stopping sexual abuse and exploitation will be hosting a 5K run and concert to raise awareness to the issue.
The first-ever Walk Concert and 5K Run is the brainchild of The Demand Project, created in 2006 by husband and wife Jason and Kristin Weis.
The event is set for Saturday at the Jenks Riverwalk Crossing and will be held from 8:50 a.m. to 11:50 a.m.
