Footsteps to Inspire: Running across the world to promote peace and inspire change for survivors of sexual violence
On 18 July 2016, Claire McFarlane began running 16km of beach in every country and dependency of the world: that's 230 countries and over 3500km of beach. Why? To promote peace and inspire change for survivors of sexual violence.?
It's called Footsteps To Inspire and is a world first, both as an expedition and social cause. Claire is using beach running and adventure travel to tackle this difficult issue in a more positive, empowering way, and to be an example that is possible to survive and thrive after a life trauma. By running beaches around the world, Claire is uniting communities and igniting change on how we talk about rape. Claire knows how hard it is to be a survivor because she is one. Through peaceful outreach and sharing her own personal story, Claire is fast becoming a voice of hope and inspiration to many.
Join us on Thursday 11th October to hear Claire share her story and talk about her travels so far – this inspirational speaker is not to be missed!
