Who Run the World? Girls: Including You in Just 4 Easy Steps

Who Run the World? Girls: Including You in Just 4 Easy Steps

If you need some motivation to get up and moving, consider this is: girls are literally running the world. And by literally, we mean literally.

Throughout the entire month of October, women and girls around the world will run to benefit charities focused on global female empowerment with Girls in Tech.

And, trust us, it will not go to waste.

"Whether you run once or everyday, raise $10 or $10,000, your time, effort, energy, and voice will change lives and build communities all over the world," the website states.

What's more? This is a collective virtual effort, so you can run at your own pace, your own time, and as often (or as little) as you'd like. To get involved, simply follow these four easy steps below.

1. Register
For just $25 upon signing up, you'll have access to a personal fundraising page, inspiring emails, virtual explorations (Death Valley, Banff, Tibet, and Bali), local run-groups and meet-ups, prizes, and more!

2. Connect.
Simply hook up your fitness app so your efforts and mileage will be accounted for in the collection of worldwide progress.

3. Fundraise
Raise money as you go! Keep training and spread the world.

4. Run
Beginning on October
1 and ending on October 31, it's your turn to run the world. The more you run, the better you feel, and the more rewards you (and others) receive.
