Run for Congo Women: Chicago Oct 11

This is a 5K ( I think it's only 5k) run coming to Chicago in the fall for a fantastic cause...
"Run for Congo Women" is a grassroots run or walk or bike or swim or bake or pray fundraiser for Women for Women International's Congo Program. In only one year, it has blossomed into a global movement with a very simple message:

Congolese lives matter. The lives of Congolese women are significant. The lives of Congolese children are precious. They have waited far too long. They are worth our effort. We are running to help.

Runs are being planned in the following cities - keep checking back more information!
