2. Create a Team and invite others to walk or run with you (virtually or in-person). You'll need to create your individual page first.
3. Donate to an existing team or an individual's fundraising page. Support their walk and help them fundraise for SARA's lifesaving services and programs.

Why Walk for SARA?
Imagine a survivor fighting the day-to-day struggles of isolation, employment, family responsibilities, and possibly illness because of the pandemic then also having to cope with the physical, mental, and emotional toll of sexual assault. These double victims experience greater likelihood of depression, terror, hopelessness, and even suicidal ideation.
That's why COVID-19 hasn't stopped us here at SARA, either. We are evolving and adapting to serve the new and emerging needs of survivors during these challenging times. This life-saving work is only possible with you!
The resilience and continuity of SARA's work depend on the generosity of friends like you. Here's how you impact a survivor's life with your gift:
You ensure there is access to hope through a 24-hour on-call advocate when survivors need one the most, over the phone and still on-sit in critical cases.
You provide opportunities for survivors to heal through teletherapy when in-person therapy is not possible.
You enable prevention specialists to train educators, faith communities, and businesses remotely so they can work to prevent sexual violence from happening in the first place.
