Let's do the Starbucks Run for Women (each at her own pace), and then reward ourselves with lunch! Each participant is responsible to register herself for the race and make payment as required, but we'll meet up before and after the actual race for encouragement and congratulations ... And then go eat afterwards, of course.
There are 5K and 10K options. I personally will be doing the 5K (my first ever!) but you are welcome to do either, at your own pace, and we'll cheer each other on until we're all done and ready to celebrate together.
The STARBUCKS® RUN FOR WOMEN™ offers a fun, motivational women's-only race and girls run. The event features an amazing inspirational talk from Olympic Champion Jennifer Heil, as well as awesome tech tees, beautiful finishers bracelets, goodies from Starbucks and more!

SUPPORTING BECAUSE I AM A GIRL Plan Canada's Because I am a Girl initiative is a social movement to unleash the power of girls and women to claim a brighter future for millions of girls in the developing world. When a girl is educated, nourished and protected, she shares her knowledge and skills with her family and community, and can forever change the future of a nation. Girls are the answer. And so are YOU!
