Whether you’re registered for one of our Run for Congo Women events or blazing a trail in your own town, this toolkit will provide you with the resources you need to effectively raise awareness and funds for your effort. Even if running isn’t your thing and you’d prefer to support the cause with an indoor gathering, we’ve got you covered.

Browse our Talking Points for the facts and stats that you think will resonate with your friends and family. Use our eCards, Facebook-ready images, and sample tweets to reach out to your social networks. Read our Fundraising Tips and then set a goal for how much you’d like to raise for the women in Congo.

Now all you need are your running shoes!
