Purpose of the Race
Proceeds from the race will go to The Vanessa T. Marcotte Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit. More than 600 women are assaulted each day. We need to step up and fight back. The Vanessa T. Marcotte Foundation envisions a world where women live free from harassment. We strive to achieve this goal through education and advocacy on safety awareness and gender equality. Since our establishment in 2017, we have funded grants that educate and mentor youth on challenging the gender stereotypes that often lead to objectification against women, and have educated hundreds of girls and women on safety awareness. Vanessa inspires our mission and fuels our continued efforts.
