​You go, Girls!

The Lower East Side Girls Club - Walk-a-thon 2013

Exit9 is proud to support the Lower East Side Girls Club for their 2013 Walk-a-thon.   You can support too, by clicking through.

The Lower Eastside Girls Club provides a place where girls and young women 8-23 can grow, learn, have fun, and develop confidence in themselves and their ability to make a difference in the world. By delivering strong arts, literacy, science, health and leadership programs we provide girls with the vision to plan - and the tools to build - their future. All Girls Club programs develop environmental, entrepreneurial and ethical leadership in the girls we serve.

Time and Place: The Walk-a-thon will take place on Saturday May 11th, 2013 from 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. and will end with a fins line Block Party and Health Fair at the new Lower Eastside Girls Club Center for Community at 101 Avenue D. The Walk will kick off at the PS 20 Playground on Essex Street between Houston and Stanton Streets. Registration is from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Why Walk?  100% of funds raised through the event will support Girls Club health and nutrition programs. Each $2,500 raised supports a full year of programming for one girl; $1,500 supports school year programming; and $1,000 supports intensive summer programming. Girls Club health programs include community health workshops, nutrition and cooking classes, body image and women's health counseling, running a Farmer's Market, yoga and dance classes,  free summer camp for girls and more!
