On September 15, 2012, people from all over who care about eliminating violence against women will come together in solidarity against female genital mutilation (FGM)! The 5K walk takes place at Riverside Park, Manhattan's most spectacular waterfront park, stretching four miles from 72nd to 158th Streets along the Hudson River. Our goal is to raise $100,000.00 towards shipping crucial medical equipment and supplies to the first free hospital to provide treatment and genital reconstruction to victims of FGM in Africa. We will also have available products from the womens economic empowerment program of our partner, SAWA Association in Giza, Egypt to help the fight against female genital mutilation in Egypt where the prevalence of the practice is 97%.
