Ljays Half Marathon for Women's Refuge


I would love if you would get behind me as I raise funds to support such a vital organisation here in Aotearoa - Women's refuge.

Being someone who has personally benefited from the Wellington Women's Refuge programme, I cannot begin to express how incredible their mahi is. Women's Refuge work extremely hard to empower women to live a life free of abuse.

For women who have been abused, coming to terms with the realisation of their situation can be extremely difficult. Often it takes a decent amount of time to gain the courage to seek help. Women's Refuge provide a safe, trusting and supportive environment which encourages women to face their painful reality. Their programme's have been extremely successful, with my story being one of them. They provide knowledge around the complex topic of 'abuse', which allows victims to understand what they have been enduring. At the start of programme, women often attend being very scared and beaten down. Over the duration of the course there is a massive transformation as women gain confidence, self worth, strength and knowledge, which helps them break the cycle of abuse.

My desire is that my story of hope will encourage others & bring more awareness to abuse.

With a handful of runs under the belt, training was going really well! Unfortunately, I have been hit hard with the flu & i'm only running to grab tissues at this stage. Hoping to shake this quickly so i can put my shoes back on & put in the mahi! Thanks to everyone who has donated- it means heaps! :)
