This struck a major chord with us. In a culture that tends to place the value of a healthy body solely on its size, ladies like LC and ourselves must work that much harder to remind girls that body shape and the skin we’re in do not define our well-being.
Healthy bodies will always come in all different shapes and sizes.
It’s important we continue to encourage girls to lead active and healthy lifestyles, as well as focus on increasing confidence and self-esteem. A key tenet of our leadership programming is to teach a girl to believe in herself, appreciate her individuality, and respect herself and others.
We are participating in the Esprit de She once again this year to support a fantastic women-focused event, as well as its charitable partner: Girls on the Run, an after-school program that uses running to inspire and motivate girls.
We encourage you to join us on July 30th at Esprit de She — whether you’re running or walking with us (use code CGL15 when you register!), cheering us on, or just visiting our booth in the finisher circle--your involvement helps support equality in leadership. Remember to use our hashtag: #CGL5K on social media and order yourself a CGL race tank here!
Together, we can invest in girls and encourage everyone to lead an active and healthy life!
