Happy October, the month of the WALK to End FGM!

Are you ready for the walkathon?  Are you ready to “Walk to End FGM?”  We hope you are because we are only 30 days away from the walkathon on Saturday, October 31st!


If you have not registered yet, it is not too late.  To register, please visit our website at www.globalwomanpeacefoundation.org, select “Events” and scroll down and click on “Register Now”.


We’re pleased to announce that the JW Marriot Hotel is the official hotel of the walkathon.  If you require overnight accommodations, please click this link and make your hotel reservations


The deadline is Friday, October 9th to receive the special negotiated rate.


On the day of the walk, free street parking will be available on Constitution Avenue, but it is first come, first to get the free spaces.  We suggest you take Metro to Federal Triangle, which is the closest metro station.  Metro opens at 7:00am that Saturday.
