This event has now passed.

Credit Union SA is proud to again be the major sponsor for this year’s Women on the Run event.

Organisers will follow a COVID-safe plan for the event including check in and race timings to ensure SA Government guidelines are adhered to.

At least one woman is murdered every week in Australia by her partner or former partner. Zahra Foundation was established by the children of Zahra Abrahimzadeh, who was killed by her estranged husband at the Adelaide Convention Centre in March 2010. This event is an annual reminder of Zahra’s bravery and hope for the future.

The funds raised will enable us to support 30 women and non-binary people through the process of recovery and along the journey to economic empowerment.

Demand for these services has soared amid the pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic but current funding levels mean the foundation is only able to help a quarter of the women who apply.

About Zahra Foundation

Zahra foundation was established in 2015 in honour of Zahra Abrahimzadeh, who was murdered by her estranged husband in 2010. Zahra’s children Arman, Atena and Anita created an organisation to help women who had escaped abuse gain the skills they need to build a life free from violence.

The foundation offers a unique empowerment program, specialised financial counselling, one-off grants and skills workshops to help abuse survivors enrol in study, find work and plan their future.

Zahra Foundation relies on the generous support of sponsors, donors, government agencies and community fundraisers to continue this work.
