Rock the Red for Girls on the Run

The Red Dress Run (July 14, 2018) is a wonderful tradition celebrating women’s fitness. What better way to bring more purpose to this cherished annual event than to support girls in achieving lifetime health and wellness for themselves.

We are proud to partner with Girls on the Run, Greater Hartford for this year’s Red Dress Run 5K walk/run. Your donations will help get their program into two more local schools this fall. Girls in grades 3-8 that go through the 10-week program are taught about core principles to help them grow into strong, confident young women: Confidence, Character, Care & Compassion, Connections, Competence and Contribution.

Adolescence can be tough. During these years, girls face social pressures, relationship challenges and conflicting messages about how they should act and who they should be.  By nurturing girls' overall wellness - physical, emotional, social and spiritual - we help girls to be intentional with their decision making, build healthy relationships and be comfortable in their own skin.

Your generosity and donations are greatly appreciated – please consider running on July 14 and raising donations for them or donate directly HERE. 

The girls are not simply asking for your donations.  They have put their time, efforts and heart into swag to be enjoyed by all race participants!  Girls in the program have hand-made all of the custom finisher bracelets and a team of girls will be participating on race day!

Run, walk,volunteer or donate on July 14 – all experiences and ages are welcome to participate in a welcoming race environment that supports women, fitness and strength.
