5k Run/Walk for Congo

For women in the Congo, brutal gang rape and torture are a daily reality. Rape is used as a weapon of war. More than 5.4 million people have died in the conflict in the Congo since 1998. This 5k is to raise money for Women for Women International, an organization in the Congo that provides women survivors of war with financial assistance, job skills training, rights awareness education, trauma counseling and the opportunity to bond with other women who have endured similar violence and hardship. Ask professors, family, and friends to donate pledges.

The registration fee is $15, but just $30 can support a woman in Congo for an entire month. Students, parents, faculty, and friends are all welcome to run or walk!
