2nd ANNUAL 5K and 1 Mile FUN RUN!
SATURDAY APRIL 20, 2023
Girls of Virtue is a community for young women to have a safe environment that will teach them the proper skills they need to face today’s complex generation. To install life skills through mentorship, workshops, and education. Empowering them to be grounded spiritually, mentally, physically, and financially.
For our 2nd Annual 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run, we have selected the Jax Downtown Riverwalk. We chose April because Girls of Virtue was founded in April 2020 and we received the keys to our first Empowerment Center in April 2022.
All proceeds from this event go directly to our program. From 14 years old when our youth begin navigating their emotions, to 18 as they transition into independent living, and into their early 20s we will fill the gap for our young women. We have leased the old Daily Record building downtown and in November 2022 opened the first Empowerment Center in our area to offer free classes to the young women in our community.
We have a gym to teach fitness and self-defense. A yoga studio for mindfulness. A kitchen for nutrition and healthy cooking on a budget. A computer lab for college and job applications, resumes, and homework. A library filled with books to empower and equip them. Private rooms for mentoring and one on one mental health coaching. A creative arts area to expand their imaginations. A large life skills room for group therapy and workshops on every topic to prepare our ladies for success. Then an entire floor is dedicated to helping these ladies launch companies and earn vocational trades.
