Around the World 5k for Free to Run

The Around the World 5K is an opportunity for the foreign service and expat running and walking community to come together and "race" in April for charity.

A fundraising campaign for Free to Run


Free to Run’s mission is to enable women and girls to safely and boldly engage in outdoor activity in conflict-affected regions like Iraq and Afghanistan. Through a combination of sports programs, life skills development, and community outreach, Free to Run helps females to reclaim public space and change views about the roles they can (and should) play in a society.

As part of the Around the World 5K, please consider making a donation to support the mission of Free to Run.


If you are so inclined, create your own fundraising page (or fundraising team, if you're running with a group!) and collect donations from friends and family.

All donations will support on-going running programs for girls living in IDP camps in Iraq.
