Incapital to be an Official Sponsor for the Freedom Climb

Trek to raise awareness for trafficked, exploited women and children worldwide

Incapital, a leading underwriter and distributor of fixed income and other financial products, today announced that it will be an official sponsor of the Freedom Climb for the second consecutive year.

A project of the faith-based organization Operation Mobilization, the Freedom Climb gives women around the world the opportunity to be an advocate and voice for women and children who are trafficked, enslaved, oppressed and exploited, according to the organization.

“We are inspired by and supportive of the group of women who will be making the climb this year as well as the Freedom Climb’s mission,” said John Radtke, CEO of Incapital. “Incapital is honored to collaborate with the organization in an effort to build awareness of their important causes on both a local and global level.”

For this year’s Freedom Climb, a total of 44 women will climb to Everest Base Camp and then summit Kalaphatar, their efforts symbolizing the ‘climb’ that women and children around the world are making to gain freedom. According to the organization, last year 48 women hailing from seven different countries met in Tanzania to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro.

“Incapital has been a generous and continuous supporter in the fight against modern-day slavery and human trafficking,” said Lori Degler, southeast regional director of partner relations for Operation Mobilization USA, the founding organization for the Freedom Climb.  “Incapital’s tangible involvement in this fight has helped free literally hundreds and perhaps thousands of women and children from these atrocities through The Freedom Climb. Incapital’s caring investment has given dignity and hope to women and children today, and a brighter tomorrow for generations to come.”

The 2013 Freedom Climb will span April 9 through April 25th. For more information about the Freedom Climb, visit http://www.thefreedomclimb.net.
