We believe everyone should be FREE TO RUN!
The ability to participate in physical fitness and enjoy outdoor adventure is a human right and fundamental freedom. Free to Run is an NGO that uses running, fitness, and adventure to empower and educate women and girls from conflict-affected communities where repressive gender roles have prevented girls from playing sports, exercising, or sometimes even leaving their homes.
This November, Free to Run’s first crew of volunteers are running the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon and raising funds for our programs in Afghanistan and Hong Kong. As athletes, we have all witnessed the power that sports has to inspire confidence, teach us discipline, and provide us with the opportunity to learn, grow, and have fun. We believe every girl should grow up benefitting from these opportunities.
A donation to Free to Run will help provide athletic equipment and programs to refugee communities in Hong Kong and after school curriculums in Afghanistan.
