Our Town Kid to Know's personal passion

ARTHUR, Ill. (WCIA) -- This Kid to Know, from Our Town, is using her feet to raise awareness about human trafficking. 14-year old Lindsey Yoder walked 300 miles at the start of the summer.

It's not the way most teens spend their time off from school. It's called the Walk 4 Freedom. She learned about the cause during a youth group conference.

From there, she watched the movie Priceless, then she started training. Each day, she would push herself to walk another mile, but nothing could prepare her for the 300-mile trek.

She says it was worth it and she did it for all the women suffering. She raised just under $40,000 and is still accepting donations.

Yoder's next endeavor is to ride her bike from Canada to Mexico.
