San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 15, 2017
The mission of the EMPOWER Race Series, to empower women and girls through movement, sweat and community, aligns perfectly with Girl Talk, a peer-to-peer mentoring program for middle school girls, whose curriculum is tied to developing self-esteem and leadership through community service.
The EMPOWER Race Series will donate to Girl Talk with the goal of connecting and empowering young girls through community service and leadership programs.
Fit Approach founder Jamie King said, "We are delighted to partner with Girl Talk. It’s an amazing organization that aligns with our own vision of supporting and empowering women and girls, strengthening community, and of course giving back.”
"Girl Talk is beyond excited that the EMPOWER Race Series has selected us as their charity of choice," said Haley Kilpatrick, founder of Girl Talk. "Through the EMPOWER Race Series support, Girl Talk will be able to connect with and empower more middle and high school girls."
