The 2014 Solstice Run is organized by On The Ground to raise awareness and funds for women's empowerment programs in the DRCongo. The run will begin at sunset on Friday, June 20th in beautiful Leelanau County. It will continue south 40 miles through the night, ending at sunrise over the breathtaking Lake Michigan in Traverse City.

The funds raised will be used to launch OTG's next project area in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where we will focus on women’s empowerment programs. Together with our supporters and partners we’re working to bring peace and transformation for women’s lives in the eastern DRC region where hundreds of women, mostly widows, feel the brunt of difficulties in the conflict stricken area.
