Thank you to everyone who participated in the Run for Congo Women in New York!

Run for Congo Women New York 2009 007

We are pleased to report that the Run for Congo Women in New York has so far raised a total of $35,316: $2,570 from donations received at the run, $19,369 from online donations, and the rest is in fundraising money! We had a total of 351 participants: 46 runners who registered the day-of and 305 who pre-registered. We also gained 13 new Congolese sister sponsors. Great job everyone!

Just because the run is over, though, does not mean people have to stop donating! The fundraising pages are still active. We encourage all of you to keep fundraising for Women for Women International. We are always in need of more donations!

The New York Run for Congo Women had the privilege of being promoted on the TODAY Show. The New York Run for Congo Women organizers and Zainab Salbi represented Run for Congo Women and Women for Women International on the TODAY Show on Friday the 25th, the day before the run.

Thanks again to the 351 participants who came out for the Run for Congo Women in New York, to those who raised and gave funds to this initiative, and to all the other people who made this event possible!
