The Active Witness Challenge is a virtual fundraiser to commemorate the 1965 March on Selma. It is not remiss that we are in the midst of our generation's Civil Rights Movement.
Whether participants walk, run, or support through a donation, we have an opportunity to be active about our witness.
We run because they walked.
This fundraising challenge is for supporters to run or walk throughout September 2021
