BENEFITING: WOMEN FOR AFGHAN WOMEN INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 10, 2015
Join Women for Afghan Women for our annual walkathon as we celebrate International Day of the Girl Child with a walk to end child marriage.
The International Center for Research on Women estimates that one third of girls in the developing world are married before the age of 18 and 1 in 9 are married before the age of 15. This is unacceptable. This year WAW commemorates International Day of the Girl Child with a walk to end this horrific practice, and we invite you to walk with us!
Three ways to participate:
1) Register to walk with us in Brooklyn, NY by registering via our website. We will walk a total of 1 mile, partly across the Brooklyn Bridge!
2) Host your own walkathon! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for support. Don't forget to start your own team here!
3) Donate and fundraise on this page!
All funds raised will go toward the empowerment and protection of Afghan girls and women through Women for Afghan Women's programs in Afghanistan and New York.
