Running4Rights 2017

Throw on your runners and join us to advance and protect the rights of women and girls in our region. In a changing local and global climate that threatens to roll back progress, it’s more important than ever that we work together towards a gender equal world.

Every day we continue to see women face appalling levels of violence, discrimination and significant economic disadvantage which is why we need to continue to raise funds to secure essential programs as demand for them continues to grow.
