2013 Gulf Coast Chapter Walk to End Violence Against Women and Girls

Saturday, February 02, 2013

Benefiting U.S. National Committee for UN Women

Please join the Gulf Coast Chapter of the US National Committee for UN Women for our annual walk to prevent violence against women and girls in Sarasota and around the world.  Violence among women is a worldwide pandemic, with up to 70% of women experiencing physical or sexual violence in their lifetimes.  And, among womrn 15 to 44, acts of physical and sexual violence cause more death and disability than cancer, malaria, traffic accidents and war combined.

Help us end this violence by joining us as a walker or a sponsor.  It only takes a couple of quick keystrokes to fo so.  Funds raised from our walk will aid in the US National Committee's education efforts and will further the programs of UN Women to eliminate violence against women and girls.  For more information, go to www.unwomen-usnc.org/gccevents.

Registration donation for walkers is $20

Onsite Registration begins at 8:15a.m.; Walk starts at 8:30a.m.
