2020 Walk To End FGM Registration Opens April 1, 2020
Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation (GWPF) is pleased to announce that registration for the 7th Annual Walk To End FGM will be on Wednesday, April 1, 2020, and it is not an April Fool either. The 2020 Walk To End FGM is scheduled for Saturday, October 17th on the Washington National Mall. Started in 2014, Walk To End FGM is a 5K charity walk-A-thon against female genital mutilation (FGM). FGM is the partial or total removal of the external female genitalia for non-medical reasons. Most girls undergo FGM when they are between 5 and 15 years old. Practiced for more than 5 centuries, FGM made its way to Europe, the U.K., Australia and North America due to the continuation of the practice. The purpose of the Walk to End FGM is to raise awareness about the practice of FGM and to raise funds to support GWPF’s programs.
