Every woman has the right to be safe both in their own homes and in their communities. We are asking you to come together to stand up for all women.

The #SheWasGoingForARun Campaign aims to actively combat violence against women by raising awareness, fundraising, sharing online content and community building.  Girls & women should not live in fear.  Funds will be raised for Women’s Aid.

Every person who takes part is standing up for all women and making a difference. In 2021 there were 28,096  disclosures of abuse against women. We are coming together to take a stand against and start a conversation about the REAL fears women face on a daily basis. All funds raised will go towards Women’s Aid to help offer confidential information, support and understanding to women in the Republic of Ireland who are being abused.

How It Works?

Hub leaders near you will create their own routes and challenges to show support and help fundraise for Women’s Aid.

You can join a hub near you to go for a run / walk to raise awareness OR you can run / walk as an individual or with family / friends in your own time and in your own locality if there is no hub set up near you.

If you would like to create your own hub, you can complete the form below.
