The TRIBE Freedom Foundation is a registered charity established by the TRIBE community to raise funds to fight modern slavery and end human trafficking.
The TRIBE Freedom Foundation is a UK registered charity (no. 1172251) established by the three Co-Founders of TRIBE (UK registered company: Everyday Adventures Ltd, no. 09286289) on 24 March 2017 on behalf of the TRIBE community to raise funds to fight modern slavery and end human trafficking.
TRIBE Freedom Foundation was inspired by Run for Love; an epic 1,000 mile journey, completed by co-founders Tom, Rob & Guy in 2013. Over 250 runners joined them along the road from Odessa to Dubrovnik to fight human trafficking and raise funds to set up the first UK home for trafficked children.
Since Run for Love, we have continued to work towards our mission, inspiring thousands of everyday athletes and adventurers to push their own limits to help increase awareness of modern slavery and end human trafficking. We empower communities to create an impact.
