Our friends over at The Lost Girls are always on the go—whether it be on a plane, train or their own feet. This fall, they’ve formed the Runaway Bridesmaids running team and are asking for our support. They are running the NYRR Fifth Avenue Mile on September 22 as a lead up to the Marathon; they plan on running both races in bridesmaids dresses!
Why would one do something so crazy you ask? They are raising money to help fund a shelter for the victims of sex trafficking and children of sex workers in India through Village Volunteers. You can help by joining the Fifth Avenue Mile race (it’s only a mile, so you don’t have to be a long distance runner for it!) or sponsoring the Runaway Bridesmaids’ team.
We can’t think of a better thing to do with our old bridesmaid’s dresses!
