NAS PRES RUNNING IN LA MARATHON FOR WORTHWHILE CAUSE
On Sunday, February 14th 2016, the Netherlands American Society's president Justin Verduyn will be running the L.A. marathon from Dodger Stadium, along Hollywood Blvd., down Sunset Blvd., to the Santa Monica Pier. He will be running for a very good cause, namely The Dream Center, his church's hospital. Participants run to raise support for the Dream Center's human trafficking program, Project Hope.

From Justin,
"There are 10,000 women trapped in underground brothels throughout Los Angeles. We are the only emergency rescue shelter in Southern California for adult victims of human trafficking. It takes $1,200 to provide medical and dental care to one survivor at The Dream Center. Every dollar counts!

Help me help one. Bring life to one. Rescue one.

You can watch a two minute video on Facebook

You can join me in bringing an end to modern day slavery by making a donation. We can make a difference in the life of one girl. We can set the captives free!"
