International Day of the Girl 5K Run
October 11th is the International Day Of The Girl - a day dedicated to empowering girls, advocating for their rights, and building a road to a better future for women around the world. For this year's International Day Of The Girl, we're inviting our whole community in on the action with our partner Girls Gotta Run - a non-profit in Ethiopia dedicated to using education and running to empower girls in their community.
Kayla Nolan, Executive Director of Girls Gotta Run, lets us know how we can all join in on the fun this weekend to make the world a better place for women.
We are excited to partner with Oiselle to celebrate the International Day of the Girl! Help raise funds and awareness for girls who are empowering themselves and their communities through running and education in Ethiopia by participating the GGRF IDG 5K Pop-Up Run!
