I am proud to be an Ambassador for Free to Run because I believe in the power of sport!

In this role, I am helping to raise awareness and funding for Free to Run, an organization that supports women and girls in areas of conflict through outdoor activities to build physical, emotional, and social well being.

This year, I completed the Grand Prix von Bern (16.1 km) and the Zurich Half-Marathon (21.1 km) in support of Free to Run.

Would you please considering making a donation today?

About this Campaign

Official Fundraising Page for Ambassadors of the Award-Winning Charity

This is the official Ambassador page 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. 

Free to Run Ambassadors believe strongly in Free to Run's mission. Through their own campaign pages, ambassadors are raising funds to support Free to Run's award-winning programs for young women and girls. Programs are designed to develop women into community leaders who can bring people together across cultural, ethnic and religious lines.

Ambassadors come from all around the world to support Free to Run. They are running, racing, and pushing their own limits in solidarity with the young Afghan women who have been told by their government that they can not participate in sports.

Through Ambassador support and fundraising, Free to Run will work to provide sporting and leadership opportunities to our participants so they can be armed with the tools they need to succeed. Free to Run believes young women can and will be a force for positive change.

Please donate to one of our many amazing ambassadors who are living proof that sport can empower anyone to succeed!
