1 Billion Rising Events

VDay Rise Run

About The Event

Meet at Mill City Running in Northeast Minneapolis to go for an evening run. We are running in solidarity with exploited women. We are running to remember and heal from our own or our loved one's victimization. And we are running to rise up and celebrate our survival and strength. All paces welcome. You are free to go any distance, but there are handy 2.5, 4, 5, and 7 mile loops from the store which go around Stone Arch Bridge and the Mississippi River.

About The Organizer

Jamie Cheever

I find catharsis through running, and I gain strength from the relationships I build with fellow athletes.

I am a professional runner with Team USA Minnesota and Oiselle, and I am a graduate student in Social Work at the University of Minnesota. I am looking forward to pursuing a career in sexual violence prevention.
