WOMEN'S INITIATIVES

Announcing our partnership with
Girls on the Run

As women's-focused brand, we are supporting young women, via our partnership with Girls on the Run International, a non-profit organization that works to encourage the development of self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls. Girls on the Run is celebrating their 25-year Anniversary this year, and we’re honored to be working with them.

"You can't compete with me
I want you to win too."

What is Girls On the Run?

Based in Charlotte, N.C., Girls on the Run is a nonprofit organization with local Councils in all 50 states. Founded in 1996 with 13 girls, Girls on the Run has now served more than 2 million girls. Over the course of the program, girls in 3rd-8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.

Girls on the Run is included as a top research-based program in a Social-Emotional Learning Guide developed by researchers at Harvard University. The organization has been recognized by the National Afterschool Association (NAA) as one of the most influential after-school programs and by Health.gov as a National Youth Sports Strategy champion.
