Join the Farkhunda Trust with the support of Dr Walid Halimi, PhD student at Westminster University and a Farkhunda Trust Ambassador, in a 3K charity run for education. The money raised will support disadvantaged young women attain a higher education in Afghanistan in order to secure their future and support women’s rights in the country.
For further details see Eventbrite link HERE.
On Saturday the 14th of October, two groups of runners will partake in the 3K run: Group 1 will set off at 16:00 while Group 2 will begin at 17:00; there will be approximately 24 runners, all of whom will be wearing Farkhunda Trust t-shirts.
We kindly ask that attendees donate £7 or you can sponsor the runners for just £10.
If you cannot make it on the day, the runners appreciate any amount of donation to support Afghan women’s education.
This is a fun event meant for all ages and abilities, water as well as other refreshments and goodies will be available to purchase at the event. The run aims to bring people together who share the belief that educating women educates a nation. We hope to raise money for the Farkhunda Trust and heighten awareness on women’s access to higher education in Afghanistan. In order to achieve this, we ask that you sponsor the 5K runners. The minimum sponsorship amount is £10.
The location is TBD, but we are planning on Hyde Park. Stay tuned for more information on this.
