See Melissa Bird Emcee March 16 in San Francisco

Exciting News! I am officially the Emcee for My Step, Her Stride – San Francisco on Saturday, March 16, 2013 on the Great Meadow at Fort Mason! This event is the 1st Annual event of this kind in the Bay Area and is a fundraiser for Women for Women International-an organization dedicated to helping women survivors of war rebuild their lives.

Walkers and runners will enjoy a beautiful 5K course with views of the Golden Gate Bridge followed by a finish line festival that will include music, dance, and food as well as prominent speakers addressing women’s and global issues. Participants will be able to sponsor a woman survivor of war, purchase products handmade by women from WfWI programs, and get more involved with WfWI in the Bay Area.

Check-in begins at 8:30am and the program begins at 9:30am. Online registration is available on this site through Thursday, March 14 at 2pm PST. Event-day registration is welcome at 8:30am on the 16th (at a cost of $5 more per registrant). The event is on rain or shine. Sorry, please leave your dogs at home!

If you live in the Bay Area or have friends that do and you want to participate in this event to raise money to help women who are survivors of war sign up for the 5K AND come see me on stage!
