Start spreading the news … you could be heading to The City That Never Sleeps – the ever changing, melting pot of cultures and epicentre of the arts – New York, New York.
New York City wears many crowns, and for a good reason. It’s a destination that people dream of visiting; a true city slicker’s delight. It is also home to one of the best and most iconic road marathons in the world.
It’s true – just walking through this awe-inspiring city is an incredible experience. Now picture yourself pounding the pavements of this concrete jungle on Team White Ribbon in the 2018 TCS New York City Marathon.
As you run from Staten Island to Manhattan and cross the Queensboro Bridge, you’ll feel yourself digging deeper as you push yourself to reach that finish line in Central Park, millions of people on the sidelines cheering you on.
Not only will you have completed the TCS New York City Marathon, you’ll also have raised the vital funds to support White Ribbon to continue its vital work to end men’s violence against women.
As an organisation which receives less than 10% funding from the Government, White Ribbon Australia’s existence relies on financial support from generous individuals and organisations. All funds raised through our Run for Respect support our best practice primary prevention programs, community engagement initiatives and research to help end violence against women.
$42 enables someone to take our online e-learning course. With the course segments continually reviewed and researched, we are able to keep this resource relevant and free to the public.
$280 helps us translate our factsheets into different languages, creating accessible, relevant resources for culturally diverse groups so that language is not a barrier to access important information and support.
$1,550 helps us design, print and distribute resources to support the community to start these challenging conversations.
$2,700 will enable a community forum to raise awareness and start conversations within diverse communities. With indigenous women and girl’s 35x more likely to experience domestic violence, it is important to support different communities to discuss this complex issue in a culturally relevant manner.
$8,950 enables an innovation incubator – a workshop to help kick start the development of new primary prevention models. This may include identifying target audiences such as universities, sporting clubs and young adults for specific initiatives to engage.
$12,300 will support us to empower role models in the community as Ambassadors, Advocates and supporters, providing the tools and resources they need to lead the conversation in their communities. Utilising our networks we link people and resources to support services, community groups and stakeholders to embed our programs and initiatives, enhancing the whole of community approach to drive social change.
To end violence against women, we must develop new creative and compelling campaigns, activities and programs to reach and empower every Australian. A donation of $36,000 would support the creation of an engaging campaign to reach more Australians with our message.
