This Woman Will Run 240 Miles To The Women’s March On Washington In Support Of Planned Parenthood

No comments

On Jan. 16, 2017 (which also happens to be Martin Luther King Jr. Day), Alison Marie Désir and a small team of women will begin a 240-mile run from Harlem to Washington D.C. in an effort to raise money and awareness for Planned Parenthood, and to showcase the awesome power of women.

The initiative, called “Four Women Run for ALL Women,” will require Désir and her comrades to run roughly two New York City Marathon distances for five days in a row (a marathon is 26.2 miles, meaning the women will be running an ultra marathon each day).

I wrote about Désir’s trek in an article on Bustle, which you can read in it’s entirety here. Join the cause and either run yourself, or donate to the GoFundMe page!
