BENEFITING: WOMEN FOR WOMEN INTERNATIONAL
Mileage Tracker: 1,461
Project: Running 3 Million Meters (3,000 Kilometers or 1,864 Miles) in one year to benefit Women for Women International as an extension of Widowsweave activist art series, raising awareness of Iraqi widows.
Story: Kevin Valentine as Artistactivst is logging his daily runs and occasional races to fundraise for Women for Women International, a charity that assists women survivors of conflict in Iraq, Afghanistan, Congo and many other countries. These women are given job training and human rights training to better prepare them to survive in the harsh environment that is their daily lives.
This first step for 3 Million Meters is only a beginning. Artistactivist intends to engage others to join in running for this great cause.
