A team of 25 cyclists rode into the Mid-Ohio Valley Tuesday night in an effort to raise money and awareness to support the end of modern day slavery worldwide.

The International Justice Mission Freedom Tour is pedaling 500 miles -- and will end their journey at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Biking across several states; championing a cause they all believe in.

"They do it because we're passionate about the issue. And this is a way we can take action and kind of promote a change I guess, and seek a change with communities that we come to," says tour leader Cody Henderson.

The group started their tour in Cincinnati last week.
