Welcome to Team WITNESS's fundraising campaign for the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon!
Our fantastic runners have each pledged to raise $3,000 to support human rights around the world. Please help them reach their fundraising goal, to enable thousands of people using video to fight for change -- on issues ranging from war crimes to violence against women. Every donation makes a difference!
WITNESS - the international organization founded by musician and human rights advocate Peter Gabriel - ensures that videos of abuse help lead to justice. As Paul Strauch, one of our 2015 runners, explains: "...I find their work so inspiring. WITNESS serves as a voice to victims of crimes that otherwise may remain hidden, while also helping citizens capture footage that can be leveraged in the courtroom."
