There’s nothing more motivating than knowing that you’re running to help save and change the lives of women and children, by ending violence and abuse they experience.

In 2016/17, we reached over 1,000  women and children and supported them to feel safe and positively change their lives.  That is only possible thanks to our incredible fundraisers and supporters.
