Description

Come join us on Saturday October 7th, 2017 to celebrate International Day of the Girl (IDG) and help raise funds and awareness for Girls Gotta Run (GGR), with a 5k pop-up fun run and panel discussion!

Girls Gotta Run is the only non-profit organization in Ethiopia that uses the national sport of running as an innovative approach to creating safe spaces, ending child marriage, and expanding access to secondary school for vulnerable girls. All proceeds generated by the 5k pop-up run and panel discussion will go towards providing GGR Athletic Scholarships for girls in Ethiopia. Our goal is to raise at least $1,800 which will provide three girls with a year-long Athletic Scholarship (one scholarship is $600/annually or $50/month).

The IDG GGR 5k pop-up fun run will start at 9am at the Trackhouse and run through the Boston Common. All runners, genders, and paces passionate about celebrating the Girl Revolution are welcome!

After the run, you are invited to attend a panel discussion at the Trackhouse, with various female professional runners and running ambassadors, exploring the intersection between gender and sport based on their personal experiences. Post run Picky Bars will be provided!

Panelists include:

* Pre-registration is required

* Please arrive at the Trackhouse by 9:15am as the run will start promptly at 9:30am
