Join the founder of Run for Congo

Dear reader

Run alongside Lisa Shannon, founder of Run for Congo Women and author of A Thousand Sisters: My Journey into the Worst Place on Earth to Be a Woman, on 11th September in Hyde Park!

By taking part in our first ever 5k challenge and last Run for Congo event of the year, you will raise vital funds for the women of Congo and help us break the fundraising target of £100,000, which will be enough to provide Life-Skills Training to over 650 women.

"Joining the programme has been a salvation. My life has changed and my children are healthy.
I recovered confidence through the training."
Lucienne, programme participant.
