LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - One Lawton couple is raising money to run in a marathon in Cape Town, South Africa in November.

They will be the first American couple to participate in the run.
The marathon is called the Musk-athlon and it is sponsored by a campaign by A-21.

They are seeking to end injustice in the 21st century.

They work with police to rescue girls from captivity, provide shelter for victims and prosecute their traffickers.

Daryl Nobis and his wife Jennifer have to raise 11 thousand each to run in the marathon. They have been training for 11 weeks to run 25 point 2 miles.

Daryl says it's always been his passion to help stop human trafficking.
"If we could save just one woman or one child from the sex slave trade, I will feel that we have done something," Daryl said. "I think its just a matter of...like I said before if there is no demand there would be no supply and if men are the problem then we need to find a solution, or be the solution."
So far Daryl has raised over 6 thousand dollars and his wife Jennifer has raised 2 thousand. If you would like to donate money you can visit Liberty National Bank or the Lawton First Assembly Church, just mention it's for the South Africa Marathon.
