Why bridge the gap?

“Bridging the Gap” is a metaphor for the gap women face. It’s a pay gap. It’s an accessibility gap. And it’s many other gaps. And these gaps have consequences. According to data from the Bureau of Labor statistics “275,000 women left the workforce last month compared with 71,000 men. (NBC News)”.

Why this matters for all of us: A McKinsey & Company report published in 2015 estimated that “if women participated equally with men in the economy, global GDP would rise by as much as $28 trillion by 2025.”
 
We see our race as an opportunity to Bridge the Gap. Through the help of the Entrepreneur Fund (501 C3) and the Women’s Business Alliance we’ve created a Bridging the Gap fund that will provide free business services and access to financial resources. A portion of the proceeds from this event go to that fund. 

As a female led organization we understand what it’s like to be female leaders, entrepreneurs, and runners. 

This run was created to empower women, and to cheer them on in a race where they are celebrated. Join us for what will be an incredible experience.
