The Story

EVENT DATE: Jul 01, 2017

Join us on Saturday, July 1, 2017 at the California State Capitol for our Power Walk 5k as we come together to raise awareness for Dress for Success Sacramento’s health and wellness initiatives, as well as raise funds to provide women and girls in our community the tools and resources they need to put their best foot forward and thrive at work, in the community, and in life. Lace up your sneakers, or skates, come on your own, load up your friends, or family, and join us as we celebrate 20 years of Dress for Success worldwide, and 2 years of serving women throughout the Sacramento region. If a 5k is not your cup of tea, make a donation to support a friend or family member who may be participating, or just make a general donation. Everything (big and small) will help us to provide clothing, programs and resources to an additional 300 women and girls this year. 

The Power Walk for Dress for Success® is the only international 5k walk dedicated to empowering women on their quest for economic independence, through an active and healthy lifestyle. It serves as a “walking testament” to the need for success-driven women to become healthy in all aspects of their lives.
