Hello and welcome! This will be my first time running a half marathon. I wanted to both hold myself accountable to this goal, as well as raise a little bit of money for a charity that is a leader in the movement for gender equality in Canada. The Canadian Women's Foundation supports community initiatives that lift women and girls out of poverty and violence and into confidence and leadership. Their focus is on women and girls who face the most barriers to opportunity and the least amount of access to services, prioritizing communities where the need is greatest. I know this is a challenging time for all. Please give if you can, and share to those who may be able to support. This is a virtual run to be completed between October 1st and 31st, and I am aiming to run it on October 1st! Thank you so much for visiting, and for your support. It means so much. Much love, Zara
