I've just registered to run 8k in Amsterdam. I decided to run with my colleagues at work to raise awareness of the crimes against women and children in Congo. I decided to enjoy the day with my colleagues rather than run the half marathon like I did last year. We will accept pledges to provide financial support through the trust fund of the International Criminal Court. Funds will go to hospitals that treat rape victims.
I have also created a fund raising page through Run for Congo Women. If you enjoy running, think about taking a step for peace in the Congo by donating. Even if you can share only the cost of a cup of coffee, you will help to heal the violence of war. I plan to donate a dollar for every mile I complete at Bustinskin on 26 September, where the race will take me through at least 70.3 miles!
What steps for peace will you take?
