I love the saree and as I have made my home away from home  here, I want my friends, family and allies to understand why this is so important to me and many fellow American Indians. This is part of my identity and authenticity and I want to integrate this into my life as a norm. 

The proceeds from the run go towards non -profits that are looking to empower women (To create a global movement of women problem solvers, change makers and leaders) and also towards bringing children out of generational poverty towards a life of dignity.  

Also be part of the history in the making, this is the first saree run in the USA.  You can take part by registering to walk/run and fundraising as part of the walk/run and or show you support by donating (if you are unable to participate in the walk/run).

Thank you all

Aparna

Story

Saree, also called as ‘Sari’ may be a fashionable garment now, but it started from being a humble drape used by women thousands of years ago. The origin of the drape or garment similar to the sari can be traced back to the Indus Valley Civilization, which came into being 2800-1800 BC in northwest India. Typically, the length is between 3.5 to 9 yards and can be worn in many ways that define its versatility and beauty. It is a symbol of the heritage, culture, identities of a Desi Women

We ask you to run in a Saree as our mothers, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, great grandmothers have run in these garments before us. Join us to challenge a misconception that you can't run in a Saree. 

This is the first Saree Run in the USA...come join us in making history, right here in Doylestown PA! After the run, stay to enjoy snacks, beverages, music and several activities
