As you may have heard, the You Go Girl Relay on Front St on June 7th had been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. HOWEVER, **NEWSFLASH***we have had a slight change of plans and have decided to hold a VIRTUAL You Go Girl event!
The You Go Girl relay has always been a running event in the spirit of having fun in support of the Womens Resource Centre. The Womens Resource Centre is experiencing their highest volume of calls at this time of crisis and is in continued need of funding.
So here’s what we would like for our ladies to do:
1. Sign up on runsignup for the event. https://runsignup.com/Race/BM/Hamilton/YouGoGirl
2. On the morning of June 7th, pull out an old evening gown or dress and just get dressed to the nine’s! Have fun with it!!
3. Run any distance you like on the morning of June 7th in your fancy gear. You could run 200ft or 2k or 10k. It doesn’t matter!! (We must abide by all govt restrictions in place, so if the .5 mile radius from your home is still in effect or we can’t be outside at all, run in your backyard or kitchen if you have to. Basically, just run any distance in your fancy dress. (This is not a timed event.)
4. Post a picture to the You Go Girl Facebook page.
We have a wonderful commemorative 2020 stemless champagne glass for each participant. (We will figure out a way to distribute them at a later date if restrictions are still in place.)
Proceeds from race entry fees will go directly to the Womens Resource Centre. Any additional donations will be greatly appreciated.
We look forward to working with our wonderful sponsors, OIL, U By Kotex, Beyond Fitness, Meyer Group of Companies and Argo on the 2021 Event!
We hope that by holding this virtual event that our ladies still have some good You Go Girl fun and we raise some much needed funds for the Womens Resource Centre!
Thanking you all in advance for your support!
Your You Go Girl Committee
