About this Event

Event Details:

Please visit our FaceBook page for more information regarding the event.

The members involved with the event are John Nassour, Raffael Cummins as well as Seray Gundogdu. As a part of RMIT’s Project Management course, we are required to hold a charitable event and to also create a memorable experience for those who are willing to set aside their time and efforts in helping a very large global issue. We are all putting our efforts together for a cause that we believe needs to be resolved and can be resolved through our help and also all of your help.


The aim of this event is to create awareness and raise funds for women’s equal rights. This has been a major global issue for many years and with all of our help, we can make a change not only to this issue in Australia but also worldwide through our donations and actions towards equality. We are aiming to make a difference with the way people view gender equality and to end any sort of distinctions between men and women in matters of education, divorce, property, employment, and other matters.

How to participate?

For the Gender Equality 2020 Fun Run you can choose any distance to run or walk. We are encouraging participants to run their favourite routes and try and set a new personal best. However, out of all the people that do decide to run official distances (5km, 10km, half marathon, or full marathon) we will announce winners the day after. In order to officially participate in the event you can join our strava group and use it on race day to post your results, or if you don’t want to go through the hassle of downloading a new app and making an account you can simply track your run and post your results here on the event page. Winners of official distances will be announced the next day.

Taking part in the event is as easy as clicking “going”, running on race day, posting your results here, and donating to UNWomen through our officially partnered link (see below).


In order to aid the fight against gender inequality in the developing world our event has partnered with United Nations Women in order to ensure donations are utilised in the most productive way possible. To donate and take part in the fun run please use the link below that will take you to “JustGiving” a fundraising platform that UNWomen is directly partnered with, so your donations can be used straight away.

Every donation made to UNWomen will go towards ensuring the following:

The unique needs of women and girls are met following crisis and natural disaster;

Women and girls in vulnerable communities have access to masks, hand sanitiser and soap to prevent the spread of the virus

Putting an end to violence against women and provide support to those affected by it;

Ending poverty through enhancing women’s economic opportunities and providing practical skills and cash for work opportunities;

Women have a seat at decision-making tables and the opportunity to become leaders in their community;

Work with governments to abolish discriminatory laws that impede gender equality and hold women and girls back

Every donation helps aid the fight against gender inequality in the developing world no matter how small. However, if you wish to donate a more significant amount, below is an outline of the effect your donation will have.

$10 could help train 1 advocate to champion women’s rights and work with community leaders and governments in Zimbabwe, Afghanistan and El Salvador.

$15 could help provide financial and business training for 1 woman in Peru to create a sustainable enterprise.

$25 could help provide a dignity kit with basic necessities for a displaced woman or girl in Syria and neighbouring countries.

$50 could help support a woman living in a safe house in Ethiopia, that offers health care, legal services, job training and other forms of assistance to survivors of violence.

$100 could help teach 7 rural women in Somalia to read and write.

$200 could help provide vocational job training to help two women in rural India break gender barriers.

On behalf of the Gender Equality 2020 Fun Run team and UNWomen, THANK YOU to everyone that has donated and made the world a better place.
