Today on the Daily Beat, Thursday, February 16, 2017: Alison Désir discusses her 200+ mile run, the appeal of cross country fundraising campaigns, and what the future holds for Run4AllWomen and her activism.

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.
