Sneaker Soiree for Girls on the Run

Dance the Night away to support a local non-profit, Girls on the Run RI at the 3rd annual Sneaker Soirée Friday November 8, 2019 at Skyline Waterplace Park.

Are you ready to dance the night away in sneakers?  Girls on the Run Rhode Island is proud to announce the 3rd annual Sneaker Soirée Charity event that will take place at Skyline Waterplace Park on Friday November 8, 2019.  Girls on the Run RI serves over 600 girls annually throughout the state of RI and Southern Massachusetts, empowering each girl to know and activate her limitless potential and realize her power to impact the world.

Girls on the Run inspires girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through a research-based curriculum that includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week 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.

“ We were overjoyed with the support from our local community and businesses last year and hope to anniversary the success of our previous Sneaker Soirée.”  commented Jacklyn O’Hara, Executive Director of Girls on the Run, RI.
