BENEFITING: Free To Run Inc.

THE STORY:

I have been training to run my first marathon on the Gold Coast on the 3rd of July 2016. I would like to use the opportunity to fundraise for the Free to Run organisation.There are so many worthy causes that need valuable funds in order to operate. I have chosen Free to Run as I was inspired by an article in the Runners World magazine {November 2015] about the Free to Run organisation's work to help women in conflict-affected countries learn how to become leaders while also learning how to run. We are so fortunate to live in a society where we have the freedom to express ourselves through however means we choose. This is not the case for women in countries such as Afghanistan where conservative, traditional views on gender norms prevail.It is the endeavour of Free to Run to help girls and women experience the freedom that can occur when running or playing sport. I have personally found such freedom and empowerment through running. I would love to see more girls and women from conflict ridden parts of the world have the opportunity to experience the empowerment and confidence that participation in sport and running can bring.Everyone should enjoy this fundamental human right.
