Today on the Daily Beat, Wednesday, February 15, 2017: Alison Désir joins the show to discuss the Run4AllWomen project, raising money for Planned Parenthood, and running from New York to Washington, D.C.

Alison Désir is the founder of Harlem Run and organized the Run4AllWomen project, during which she and three women (among many others along the way) ran from Harlem to Washington, D.C. to attend last month’s Women’s March and raise money for Planned Parenthood. After setting an initial goal of $44,000, the project raised more than $100,000.

Check out the Run4AllWomen GoFundMe page, and follow Désir on Instagram @powderedfeet.
