Event Recap: Girls Inc. Family Day 5K

Braving a cloudy sky and early Saturday alarm, #TeamUWIB ran together in the Girls Inc. of NYC Family Day 5K on October 1. Not only was the morning fun and energetic, but it was also the first time UWIB has worked with the youth organization to support their mission of empowering young women to be strong, smart and bold!

 

Lina Yeh, VP of Philanthropy, and Liz Crowley, Philanthropy Committee Member, spent the morning with the women and girls of the New York City-based non-profit running, fueling up on granola bars and discussing some of the challenges young girls face as they grow up.

 

It was an inspiring day that sparked what the Philanthropy Committee hopes will grow to be a strong partnership between the groups.
