Stop Violence Against Women and Chidren!

Laufend Gegen Gewalt

AWCH stands behind initiatives to end violence against women and children. The Laufend Gegen Gewalt charity run is sponsored by the Hamburg Autonomous Women's Shelters. The goal is two fold: 1) to raise money to support the residents of the women's shelters and their children where state funds are insufficient, and 2) to raise awareness of the ever increasing number of domestic violence in Hamburg and the world.

For 43 years, the autonomous Hamburg women's shelters have offered help for those escaping violence at home. Last year, 486 women and 494 children found protection in a women's shelter. The Hamburg women's shelters offer women and children individual advice, support and perspective development for a life without violence. Domestic violence must not be ignored, tolerated or trivialized.

Join us in supporting this 15th annual charity run Laufend Gegen Gewalt (Race Against Violence). This year the charity run will return to its pre-pandemic format. Participants will meet at the Fährdamm near the restaurant AlsterCliff to run, walk, bike, or skate around the lake (7.1 km). 
We hope to involve many of our members, as well as their family and friends to show our support. Anyone can register, so please spread the link below.
