4Girls Foundation is Title Sponsor of 4th Annual Rugged Runner Challenge
Girls on the Run Palm Beach (GOTR) announced that 4Girls Foundation is the Title Sponsor for its major fundraising event, the Rugged Runner Challenge, which attracts more than 1,000 runners from around the State of Florida and beyond.
The 4Girls Foundation chose to support the event because the mission and vision of GOTR are so similar to its own. Both organizations believe in the empowerment of women and girls so that they can reach their full potential. They work to give a voice to girls and women by providing opportunities to enrich their lives, their families and communities.
“Our nieces participated in Girls on the Run one season, and we saw the joy that it brought to both of them and their family,” commented Saily Perkins, one of the founders of the 4Girls Foundation. “We wanted to enable GOTR to serve so many more in the community and to help GOTR get the word out about this wonderful program. We are so excited to support this event, which will bring together all of the GOTR girls from around Palm Beach County for their own 5K running event with the community runners who will participate in the Rugged Runner Challenge obstacle races.”
The Rugged Runner Challenge (RRC) is the only obstacle style running event in Palm Beach County that is both challenging yet family-friendly. The event will take place on April 26, 2015 at Dreher Park in West Palm Beach. It includes a 4-mile race with over 20 custom-designed obstacles for adults, which begins at 7 AM and a 2-mile race for children ages 6-13 that starts at 9:30 AM.
