Team WAR

Join Women At Risk, International as we run (or walk!) to turn pain into power on April 14, 2019 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

In the fall of 2017, WAR, Int’l was blessed with two amazing additions: a volunteer Chief of Staff and her faithful Corgi, Foxy! This special canine is a smile giver, carrot eater, food vacuum, and scratch junkie. She also happens to be this year’s Team WAR mascot!

Corgis are the Queen’s dog, and we love the  saying, “A queen will always turn pain into power.” In fact, we like it so much that we’ve dubbed it as our theme for 2019! We invite you to BE A QUEEN and help us turn pain into power!

(And yes, Foxy WILL be joining us!)
