Here’s the thing: Women make up 51% of Minnesota’s population, but are vastly underrepresented in elected office. When women run for office, they win at the same rates as men. And when they win, they tend to be really good at their jobs.
We need more people to run like girls.
All are welcome to join MSP NOW and The Progressive North for the Run Like a Girl 5k, where we’ll raise money for WomenWinning, a Minnesota-based organization that encourages, promotes, supports, and elects pro-choice women of all political parties to all levels of public office.
•Location: Como Park on Saturday, October 7th.
•We’re offering both a 5K run and a 2.5K run/walk
•Registration begins at 8:00AM.
• 5K run will start at 9:00AM. The walk will start shortly thereafter.
Register online via the EventBrite at runlikeagirlMN.eventbrite.com.
Registration fees include a Run Like a Girl t-shirt, running bib, and post-race drinks and snacks. Stay tuned for additional details around our speakers and post-race fun!
