About This Event


Celebrate with us on Thursday, April 21st! Hear from our special keynote speaker, Kathrine Switzer! Kathrine showed her LIMITLESS POTENTIAL when she was the first female to enter and run the Boston Marathon, what was then considered a men's only race. 

Dress: Cocktail/business attire with sneakers 

The Sneaker Soiree, our primary fundraising event, benefits Girls on the Run - DC's efforts to bring the life-changing program to as many girls as possible, regardless of financial situation. As a non-profit serving girls across DC, Girls on the Run - DC relies on your amazing support.
