At the end of 2018, Claire McFarlane established an NGO called Movement To Inspire: an inclusive, global organization using sport to peacefully end sexual violence.

The main project is Footsteps To Inspire and aims to become an annual global run to keep raising support for survivors and create change in every country of the world.

“Sexual violence is affecting absolutely every country of the world and generally with the same statistics,” Claire says.

Reaching and creating more awareness about child sexual abuse has also become a priority. In the USA alone, 1 in 285 children are diagnosed with cancer before the age of 20 years old, yet 1 in 10 children will be sexually abused before the age of 18 years old. This makes child sexual abuse an epidemic.

On June 22 2019 Claire had run in 49 countries.
“I rarely run alone and have noticed a common trend: people want to talk about sexual violence, they just don’t know how to. Through Footsteps To Inspire, it feels like I’m creating that safe space for conversation and understanding,” she says.

All donations from the smallest caring contribution of a couple of dollars to the biggest enabling gift will be deeply valued and help make a huge difference!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity. You are contributing to a safer world for everyone you love and know.”
