Turning Pain Into Power: Join Team WAR 2019!

Team WAR

Did you know that $300 is enough to support a woman in one of WAR, Int’l’s partnering overseas safehouses for an entire month? Or that WAR, Int’l is currently working on securing emergency housing for women at risk within our own borders? Once we are able to get a woman into a circle of protection, her journey of healing can begin as she turns her pain into power. 

Join Women At Risk, International on April 14, 2019 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, as we run and walk to help turn pain into power for women at risk. Through participating in the Gazelle Girl 5k, 10k, or Half Marathon run/walk, you can help us raise awareness AND funds to support emergency housing for at-risk women and children. 

As a community partner with Gazelle Girl, Team War offers four ways to be involved: runner/walker, team, individual donor, or volunteer!

Runner/walker or team

Team WAR needs volunteers on Saturday, April 13 from 8am-5pm and Sunday, April 14 from 7:15am-12pm. Email to let us know what day(s) and time(s) you’d like to volunteer! All registered volunteers will receive a Gazelle Girl shirt and an invitation to the post-event volunteer party; those present at the race on April 14 will also receive  a beverage at the Finish Festival.


In the fall of 2017, WAR, Int’l was blessed with an amazing volunteer Chief of Staff. With her came her faithful Corgi, Foxy, who endeared herself to our staff as our office smile giver, carrot eater, food vacuum, and scratch junkie.  We had designated Foxy to be this year’s Team WAR mascot, but sadly, she passed away in February. We will run and walk in her memory. 

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!
