Winter Walk

Walk with Us: The Power of Community

Saturday, February 1, at 9 a.m. Payne Park, Sarasota.
We will post more event and registration details soon!
Our 2019 Walk was a great success!
Thank you to all who gave of their time, talents, and donations to our walk at Payne Park. We had a record number of people walking to increase awareness about violence against women. We also bypassed our goal for this event and with your help, raised more than $16,500 to support UN Women programs for women and girls around the globe.
A warm thank you to those local agencies and organizations that work to better the lives of women and girls. Joining us in this effort were:
Dining For Women           Manatee Habitat for Humanity          Zonta
Girl Up! (teams from Lakewood Ranch and Riverview high schools) 
Manatee League of Women Voters             Selah Freedom
Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida

Each year, the Gulf Coast Chapter USNC for UN Women walks to raise awareness about violence against women 
- and to raise funds for programs to combat the problem.
Why do we walk? 
Because women and girls continue to be harmed and exploited. Worldwide, 35% of women experience physical and/or sexual intimate violence during their lifetime. That's more than one third of all women!
