I celebrated this Orange Day by walking 22,000 steps in support of the CongoSwim initiative to funds to address sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The UN Secretary-General’s UNiTE to End Violence against Women campaign proclaimed every 25th of the month as Orange Day to highlight issues relevant to preventing and ending violence against women and girls, not only once a year, on 25 November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women), but every month.
At the heart of the CongoSwim was a 22-mile swim across Lake Tahoe – hence 22,000 steps.
It is not too late for you to: wear orange today, act to end violence against women and girls, and to give to CongoSwim.
See you along the Trail.
