Girls on the Run DC: Sneaker Soiree Success!

Girls on the Run - DC Sneaker Soiree

We’re still bursting with excitement from our Annual Sneaker Soiree held at District Winery on Wednesday, April 26, 2023.

There was delicious food, refreshing drinks, and a lively auction that left everyone buzzing. From a coveted live taping and tour of the WUSA9 television station to a relaxing weekend getaway at a picturesque upstate New York lake house, there was something to pique everyone's interest.

All proceeds went o the Girls on the Run - DC program scholarship fund.

We provide full scholarships to more than 65% of program participants. We can continue providing access to our transformative program, regardless of the ability to pay, with the help of generous donors in the community.

We’re immensely grateful to everyone who came out and graciously contributed to the cause.

A heartfelt thank you to our exceptional staff and Board of Directors. Their tireless efforts and unwavering commitment to empowering young girls in the community make

We also want to give a big shoutout to our fantastic sponsors, PepsiCo, Wegmans, and Amazon. 

We're already excitedly counting down the days to next year's Sneaker Soiree, and we hope to see you all there!  Check out some memorable snapshots from the event here on our Flickr photo album.
