WAUKESHA, WIS.— Carroll University students will swing non-stop during a 27-hour swing-a-thon to raise funds for a Milwaukee organization that provides services to victims of human trafficking.
Two swings will be set up on the lawn in front of Main Hall for Swinging for Change, which will run from 9 a.m. Thursday, March 14, 2013, to noon on Friday, March 15, 2013. The 27-hour duration represents the estimated 27 million people enslaved in the world today.
Funds raised will be donated to Exploit No More, a Milwaukee-based organization that provides shelter, counseling and social services for young girls who are victims of human trafficking in the Milwaukee area.
Carroll President Dr. Douglas Hastad and Dr. Theresa Barry, vice president of student affairs, will be among students, staff and faculty who keep the swings going non-stop for 27 hours.
The event was organized by Carroll’s Residence Life and Housing staff.
