We Love Girls on the Run!

by MaryAnne Gucciardi April 06, 2015 1 min read

One of the great joys of growing Dragonwing girlgear is the opportunity to connect with other girl-focused business and organizations.

Girls on the Run, a fabulous organization that shares our mission of empowering girls through sports and an active lifestyle, is a perfect example. GOTR’s mission is to “inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.”

Girls on the Run: empower girls through sports

We’re proud sponsors of GOTR of the Triangle’s 5K Race next weekend, just down the road in Durham, NC. We’re looking forward to meeting lots of active girls, their volunteer coaches, and family members at the post-race Family Festival. When girls and parents visit our booths at tournaments and races, we learn firsthand about their needs and wishes for athletic undergarments and sports wear — features that we put into every item we sell:

– fabrics that are truly wicking and designed for the sports girls play;

– comfort, fit, and styles made just for tween and teen girls;

– bras that fit snugly and don’t bind or ride up;

– wedgie-free compression shorts that are perfect under uniforms.

If you’re at the GOTR 5K race on Saturday, April 11, please stop by our booth — right next to the flag pole — and say hello!
