Calling All Remarkable Women (That's You!)

By Kenzie Kramer on 03/02/2017 | Announcements

Wednesday, March 8th marks International Women’s Day; a day that celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. The impact that women make in the lives of others, in our communities and on the world are immense and immeasurable - spanning from scientific exploration to artistic creation to mentoring the next generation of leaders.

At Girls on the Run, one of our core values is to express joy, optimism and gratitude through our words, thoughts and actions which is why this International Women’s Day, we hope that you’ll join us in sharing the stories and accomplishments of the remarkable women and girls, past and present, who inspire you.

On Wednesday, March 8th, use the hashtag #ShesRemarkable to celebrate the bold, beautiful women who have motivated you to be your best, most-authentic self.

We’ll be sharing some of your stories along with other girls and women that we think are remarkable on the Girls on the Run International Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts.

We are looking forward to seeing your posts about the outstanding accomplishments of women around the world and are excited to celebrate the remarkable role models who are shaping the future!

Show Your Support!

This International Women's Day, we've also teamed up with two remarkable companies who will be helping more girls be joyful, healthy and confident: Gilt and Lole.

On Wednesday, March 8th, Gilt and Lole will each be donating a portion of their proceeds to Girls on the Run International. 

Gilt.com and Gilt City will be giving back to Girls on the Run while supporting female business owners across the country, including Helen Mita, one of the #ShesRemarkable women that we'll be featuring. “We need this day to remind people that we are capable in all aspects of life, in addition to being the mothers of the world,” says the Chicago restaurant owner. 

On International Women's Day, Gilt City will be giving 5% of proceeds from the Gilt City International Women's Day collection to Girls on the Run International and Gilt.com will be donating 5% of proceeds from the day, up to $10,000 total!

Lole will be donating 10% of proceeds from their US online sales and sale from company stores in New York, NY, Burlington, VT, and Santa Barbara, CA.
