The TG Foundation runs the Stockholm Marathon

This Saturday (May 28th) is the Stockholm Marathon and two ladies are running for a great cause, the TG Foundation, a charity which works to rebuild the lives of rape victims who are attacked by rebel militia in the North Eastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The TG Foundation works with grass roots level charities to provide necessary treatment and care for women who have been treated as a commodity and subjected to rape.

Charlotte Gadd and Tatiana Giraud - the TG Foundation runners, are charity volunteers and Tatiana is the Founder & CEO of the TG Foundation. Proceeds raised from the marathon run will provide funds to support schooling and education grants for rape orphans in the city of Bukavu, Congo.

According to UNICEF, at least 657 cases of sexual violence involving women and girls were documented in September and October 2010, during mass expulsions from Angola to Congo: www.tgfoundation.org.uk

I wish Charlotte and Tatiana every luck for a wonderful day, and salute them for their devotion to such a worthy cause.
