Raise $250 = Free Ananya Tote!

Every participant registered for the Madison Aruna Run who donates or raises $250 through Crowdrise by Sunday, September 23 at 11:59 pm CDT will receive a free Black Ananya Tote, hand-made by our Artisans who were freed, empowered, and employed by funds raised in previous Aruna Runs. Totes will be awarded at the Madison Aruna Run on Saturday, September 29. There are unlimited quantities of the Ananya Tote available but only one tote will be awarded to each qualifying participant. Race registration fees are not included in the $250 total. 

This promotion is presented by the Aruna Project. CrowdRise does not sponsor, endorse, or administer this Promotion.

 

Across the world, today, millions languish in sexual slavery. They are more than statistics; they are individuals, with hopes and fears, dreams and doubts. Apart from someone stepping into their need, young women like Reshma will never be free. 

 

We run to raise awareness of her need, to raise funds to secure her freedom through outreach programs, and to sustain her freedom through full time employment. When you run or walk in an Aruna Run, you run for a specific woman by name, like Reshma. You run for her freedom.

$25 = 25 New Futures

 

We ask that each participant raise or donate at least $25 to help us reach our donation fundraising goal of $5,000. Raising this amount of money would enable us to free, empower, and employ 2 women over the course of a year.

There is Strength in our Freedom
