Help Us Give Back:
Fleet Feet Fort Wayne will donate $5.00 of each registration to Girls on the Run of Northeast Indiana. Why? Because everyone benefits when we support our kids. At Girls on the Run of Northeast Indiana they aim to inspire ALL girls of ALL abilities and backgrounds to build confidence, develop a positive mental attitude (find joy), and make intentional decisions, while fostering care and compassion for themselves and for others. Their incredible volunteer coaches are trained on how to use fun physical activities and have dynamic discussions to build social, emotional and physical skills in every girl while encouraging healthy habits for life. With our gift, we are helping a girl unleash her limitless potential. We are giving her a place where she feels accepted and understood, a place where she can connect with her peers, gain confidence, and discover her true power and potential. A place where she belongs.
She is counting on us to give her Girls on the Run. And we encourage you to consider donating as well!
