Women For Change
Women For Change movement is founded by ‘Catch Me If You Can’ to create awareness and raise funds to end Gender Based Violence in South Africa.
As women we want to stand united to put an end to violence against women and children. Daily we hear news about attacks, women and children being violated in many ways: in their homes, on the streets and places of education. Even being outdoors in nature harbors a potential threat.
Our first ‘Women For Change’ event took place in Tokai Forest, on the 15th March 2016, only few days after the brutal murders of Franziska Blöchliger (Tokai Forest) and Sinoxolo Mafevuka (Khayelitsha). The event was held with more than 3 500 people from all over Cape Town, who came together to pay tribute to each woman and child who have been senselessly killed in this country.
We will come together. We will not be silent. We will stand for what we believe in.
Since then we had many successful Road Races and Trail Runs in Johannesburg and Cape Town with more than 15 000 women, children and men running against femicide in South Africa.
Due to Covid-19 and the strict lockdown, we are hosting our Women For Change Virtual Races, which allow everyone to run or walk for a better future. Join us and make a difference!
