About Us

Run 4 All Women was born in the early weeks of 2017, right before the inauguration, as many of us worried about what the future would hold. I was searching for a way to reconcile the frustration and fear I felt; was there a way to affect real change?

The answer came in the form of an idea: run from my home in Harlem to Washington D.C. and raise money for Planned Parenthood. We planned on keeping it small, just a few friends in a borrowed car, running every day and stopping each night. The goal was to raise as much money as we could and arrive in time for the Women's March. 

That, as they say, was the PLAN. 

What actually happened was nothing short of amazing. Our campaign took off, eventually being shared over 10,000 times online. Offers to help and requests to participate flooded my inbox and we decided to switch the format so more people could join us. The event turned into a relay, broken up into four mile segments, with the goal of running continuously from Wednesday January 18 through Saturday, January 21. 

Over the course of the 240+ miles from NYC to D.C. over 1,000 people joined us on the route. They came out in the middle of the night with coffee or waited in the pouring rain by the side of the road. They ran with us, opened their homes so we could rest or shower, or simply waited to high five or hug us as we rolled through their town. 

When we left NYC, we had raised $70,000. By the time we arrived on the steps of the Capitol, we had raised $100,000. 

In the weeks that followed our return, I have realized that our work has only just begun. I did not anticipate that Run4AllWomen would evolve into a movement but I am so thankful that it has. I look forward to continuing to do this important work and involving as many people as possible to ensure that our rights are upheld and our needs are met.

Warmly and in solidarity, 

Alison Désír
