We are excited to announce our annual 5K event! This year, we made the decision to not host our own race. We want your contributions to CGL to be something you feel good about, so we are dedicated to ensuring we maximize every dollar that is donated to us. By participating in the Esprit de She race, not only do we have the opportunity to support a community event focused on celebrating women, we're able to eliminate all overhead costs. This means 100% of your contribution goes directly to the CGL, and not the expenses associated with hosting an event.
We will be running and walking in the Esprit de She 5K and 10K in Maple Grove on Thursday, September 18th. So join the CGL #SHEarmy for the ultimate girl's night out: a fun 5K with friends, happy hour, a Bubbly Bar, complimentary massages and manis, all while supporting girls and leadership!
In addition to joining our team for the event, we want you to join our fundraising team! Our goal is simple: a 5K for $5K. Help us raise $5,000 this summer for the Center for Girls' Leadership!
Providing meaningful and valuable programming to inspire girls today to become the leaders of tomorrow is the keystone of our success. Your contributions help make that possible by covering the costs of planning and conducting our workshops. While programming is our #1 focus, this year, we're also focused on creating the foundation we need to grow the scope and scale of CGL quickly. Integral to this will be establishing funds to be a sustainable organization with at least one full-time employee who is solely dedicated to our success. Your donation will not only help us sustain the CGL, but also take it to the next level.

Earlier this week, I signed up for what will be my second 5K: the Esprit de She 5K. While I definitely have to hit the pavement, I'm excited represent the Center for Girls' Leadership at the event. Today we are launching our fundraising team. Our #SHEarmy will be a force to be reckoned with. Together, we have the ability to take the CGL to the next level. So, what do you say?
