The 5K was the culminating event of the year for more than 800 girls who’ve participated in Girls on the Run this year. Nearly 2,500 runners participated — girls, volunteer coaches, family members of all ages, and runners from the greater Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill community.
Dragonwing was proud to be one of the event sponsors. As I’ve said before, we love to partner with other girl-centered organizations and businesses. And GOTR, which shares our mission of empowering girls through sports and an active lifestyle, is a natural partner.
At the post-race Family Festival, we met dozens of girls of all ages — young, tween, and teen — who stopped by our table to check out our sports apparel designed just for active girls. Our sports bras and camisole tank tops were very popular, especially now that warmer weather has arrived. And our colorful braided headbands were practically flying off the table!
