Run for Congo Women  


On April 11th, the very wonderful Women for Women International is hosting their 3rd annual Run for Congo Women in Frederick, Maryland. Please consider signing up! It is a wonderful way to raise funds for women in the Congo who are suffering from devastating conditions. If you can't make it to Maryland, check the website for more upcoming run locations. The Maryland run is only 5K, and you are more than welcome to walk instead. You can also do a lone run, or consider getting creative and raising money by doing other things, such as yoga or dancing, or holding a benefit concert or bake sale. There is no one way to raise funds and awareness.

What next?

    What a great idea -- I'd do it, but I don't live in Maryland. Thanks for promoting events like this though -- the plight of women in Congo deserves more attention.
