Ninth annual Zahra Foundation Australia Women on the Run event
Women on the Run is back for it's ninth year and Credit Union SA is proud to again be the major sponsor for this year’s event.
At least one woman is murdered every week in Australia by her partner or former partner. The 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.
By taking part in the Women on the Run event, you can help the Zahra Foundation continue to empower women and non-binary people who have experienced domestic and family violence, to not only rebuild their lives but to thrive personally, socially and financially. The Zahra Foundation are hoping to raise $50,000 at this community fundraiser, and the funds raised from this event will enable us to support 30 women and non-binary people through the process of recovery and along the journey to economic empowerment.

About Zahra Foundation Australia
Zahra Foundation Australia 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.
