Help Break The Cycle of Poverty
May 13, 2017
I have been a passionate supporter of Dress For Success for nearly 15 years and gotten to seen the transformational impact the mission has on helping women achieve confidence, strength and economic independence to break the cycle of poverty. The confidence gained through achievement not only impacts the woman directly, but also those around her. Over 70% of the women DFS assists are single mothers, so the multiplier effect created transforms families, impacting the goals and aspirations of their children, many of whom become the first in their families to seek higher education, or see the possibility of building a career. Seeing success and achievement breeds more. Help be a part of this transformative process by making even a small donation to the Power Walk.
The walk isn’t about the physical conquest, but rather to support and promote people committed to working hard to build a better life for themselves and their families, and about wanting to support the transformative journey that is catapulted once a woman chooses to unleash her power within; something a strong family environment taught me, and one I want to make sure Regan learns early. Please consider supporting Regan and I, as we walk to celebrate and support this great cause.
The Power Walk for Dress for Success® 2017 is our annual international 5K walk event dedicated to celebrating and empowering women on their quest towards leading an active and healthy lifestyle, in addition to achieving economic independence. This year’s theme, Unleashing the Power Within, represents the power and inner strength every woman has within herself, and the ability to unleash that power to make positive, rewarding healthy changes in life. True change starts from within.
The Power Walk for Dress for Success benefits Dress for Success and its health and wellness initiatives. Dress for Success is an international not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. For the past 20 years, Dress for Success has been committed to women’s empowerment, helping over 1,000,000 women work towards self-sufficiency.
