EmpowerHer Virtual 5K Walk Run
Atlanta Growing Leadership Of Women (GLOW) invites you, family, and friends to register for the EmpowerHer Virtual 5K Walk/Run! Our race will take place from Sunday, August 1st through Tuesday, August 31st at any location of your choosing. This is a family-friendly event suitable for walkers and runners of all levels, so lace up your sneakers and prepare to rule the road, sidewalk or treadmill. Registration is available for just $25 for adults and $10 for youth.
Why are we running, you ask? We at Atlanta GLOW envision a world in which all women and girls are fully empowered to pursue their dreams unobstructed by structural and oppressive barriers such as racism, sexism, and age-based discrimination. Further, we recognize that young women and girls of color experience increased vulnerabilities because of their intersecting identities, and yet they also hold immense power to drive community transformation. To that end, we are running to raise the funds and awareness to continue furthering our mission of empowering young women and girls of color towards greatness.
As a runner, your entry fee and any additional event-based fundraising efforts are extremely valued and important. Your contributions will help us strengthen the capacity of services we are able to offer to economically and systematically vulnerable young women and girls in the metro Atlanta community such as mentoring, leadership development, and skills training to help move them towards self empowerment, self-sufficiency, leadership equity and advancement, and giving them a foundation to help lead others the same.
