BENEFITING: Gwen's Girls, Inc.
EVENT DATE: May 04, 2014
Gwen’s Girls is proud to be a contributing charity in the 2014 Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon. Join the Gwen’s Girls Team to empower girls and young women to have productive lives through holistic, gender-responsive programs, education and experiences!
We are one of the few agencies in the nation that offer a unique, gender-responsive comprehensive continuum of care for girls and young women. We know the issues associated with girls are complex, even in the best of situations; however, most of the girls we currently serve live in neighborhoods that are marred with poverty, drugs, and violence. This population is at risk for poor outcomes due to abuse, neglect, involvement with the justice system, out-of-home placement, pregnancy, and poor academic performance. We have designed our programs and services to give girls the skills and supports they need to succeed and become self-sufficient and productive members of society.
We hope you’ll join our team to raise funds to empower girls and young women while participating in the 2014 Pittsburgh Marathon.
