FUN RUN 2019
International Women’s Day 5 K Fun Run/ Walk is an annual run organized every March to celebrate the resilience of women, to empower and to inspire women and girls to reach their potential. Women’s Day 5K Fun Run/Walk’s first run in 2015 was Nepal’s first and biggest women’s run. As an initiative of Higher Ground Nepal, it aims to inspire and empower women in Nepal and beyond to encourage them to run/walk for the freedom as we believe, all women have rights to live in freedom, away from violence, trafficking or any other form of exploitation and discrimination.
This year, more than 1000 runners participated in the run. Community Parters showcase their products. BlindRocks rocked the floor with blind models wearing beautiful clothes by Mukta. Nikita Chadak faciliated the walk. Since last five years, FUNRUN has provided marketable skill training to more than 200 women who have been trafficked, abused and exploited. More than 300 vulnerable marginalized kids have been provided scholarship for education. Our aim is to strengthen the capacity of women to rise forward to inspire them for change.
