Creating support for change

"Before the 'Course Feminine' was initiated, many women running and walking around Casablanca today, would probably never have dreamed of competing in front of cheering supporters. In a way they have become stars in their own world. This feeling is strengthened by the many husbands, brothers and sons who lined the streets on May 18th 2008 to encourage and support them."
