Run in a dress! Help the children of sex workers! Win a trip!

What is Runaway Bridesmaids?

A team of Runaway Bridesmaids reused dresses (the guys too!) to run The Fifth Avenue Mile on September 22, 2012. We’d like to thank everyone who donated to the cause as we went on to train for the  26.2 mile race, the ING New York City Marathon 2o12. Canceled due to the destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy, a team of six of us will now be running the marathon in 2013. What sets our team apart is that we’ll be wearing bridesmaids dresses and collecting pledges (click here to donate!) for Village Volunteers. The money goes to Village Volunteers‘ partner New Light—an organization providing shelter, healthcare, education, and HOPE for the children of sex workers in India’s largest red light district.
