Race: The Secret Marathon 3K
Amount Raised: Over $8,500.00
The Secret Marathon film team and Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan partnered with Running Room for the first annual Secret Marathon 3K. On the eve of International Women’s Day, runners gathered across Canada and beyond to celebrate everyone’s right to feel safe to run or walk in their community.
Just as the route of the 2016 Marathon of Afghanistan—profiled in the coming film—was kept secret to keep everyone safe, the Canadian routes were kept secret to remind us of people who face great risks doing something as simple as running or walking. Dozens of volunteers came out to cheer on 1113 runners, and this incredibly generous community donated more than $8500.00 to help women and girls in Afghanistan.
