Alison Désir Shares What’s Next For Run4AllWomen


From the minute we reached the Capitol Building on January 21 at 6:21 a.m., the question has been on my mind: How do we convert all of this energy into sustained activism? It is a daunting task and one that I do not take lightly. I am happy to announce that we have come up with the next steps towards doing just that. With the support of Mary Arnold and Jen Villany, two women who were part of the original #Run4AllWomen effort, we have created a Run4AllWomen Brand Ambassador program that will allow interested men and women to carry on our mission.

We will be hosting a Women’s Summit on April 28th and 29th, with the goal of empowering our Brand Ambassadors to develop and implement their own Run 4 All Women, to be held this summer. The summit will train our allies to carry forth the mission through events of their own and help elevate the national conversation about women’s issues.

Applications for Brand Ambassadors can be completed here. Later this month, we will be launching In the meantime, you can keep up with us on TwitterInstagram and Facebook for photos, videos and more.

Powdered Feet

Powdered Feet

Passionate about community, mental health and fitness, I am an endurance athlete, Under Armour athlete and believer that sport has the power to change lives. My nickname “powdered feet” comes from the Haitian Kreyol saying, which describes a person so active that you never see them, just the footprints of where they’ve been in powder. I started running after a period of depression, and, over the past 4 years, have been able to Find Meaning on the Run. My running journey started with a blog,, and eventually expanded into a transformative movement known as Harlem Run. When I’m not running, I’m working to resolve and speaking passionately about issues related to women and girls. Find meaning on the run with me at @powderedfeet on Instagram and Twitter!
