Movement to Inspire is a Swiss-based nonprofit organisation that was founded in 2018. It aims to make the world a safer place for women, men and children by using the restorative power of sport to peacefully end sexual violence.
The vision is underpinned by the work of the Footsteps To Inspire project. It's led by Claire McFarlane, our founder and a rape survivor, who is running 16kms of beach in all 230 countries of the world, raising awareness and driving a message of hope for survivors of sexual violence.

Through sport, Movement To Inspire is creating a safe space for conversation and understanding. It's opening a dialogue with civil-society organisations, community groups, governments, private sector, individuals and survivors to discuss how we can break down the barriers as a society, heal and bring in life changing strategies that will allow for restoration, fairer justice and prevention of sexual violence.
The Footsteps To Inspire project already has a footprint in 57 countries.
Each year, to help raise funds for the organisation and to support survivors of sexual violence around the world, Footsteps To Inspire organises a Global Virtual Run. This year, it will be held on Sunday, 17 July 2022.
Everyone is welcome to join in. Participants pledge a distance between 5km to 16km and complete it on the day wherever they are in the world, either by running, walking or swimming.
