Wear your kicks to work!

June 1, 2016 - June 30, 2016

Girls on the Run of Central Illinois is inviting area businesses to participate in Suits and Sneakers during the month of June which will provide financial support for our fall program. BUNN will kick off Suits and Sneakers month on National Running Day, Wednesday, June 1.

Our third annual Suits and Sneakers fundraiser is a great way to support the participants in our 10-week afterschool program which encourages confidence, teaches life skills and instills appreciation for a healthy lifestyle. Employers and employees benefit by making a donation to Girls on the Run in order to wear sneakers with your usual business attire. The suggested donation is $5 per employee, however any denomination may be charged.

Participants are then invited to celebrate by joining us at a celebrity bartender event on June 16 at The Office from 5-7 pm.  A drawing will be held for an Illinois State Fair Mega Pass and Cardinals tickets.  All tips from the event will benefit Girls on the Run of Central Illinois.

Each business participating in Suites and Sneakers Day will receive recognition in the Girls on the Run newsletter distributed to parents, friends, coaches and volunteers of Girls on the Run.

To sign your business up for Suits and Sneakers, please contact Katlyn Puclik Baker at Katlyn@GOTRcentralillinois.org or 217-726-9808.
