Join Converse SGA in presenting Hub-City “High Heel HUNDRED”…

WHY RUN?
The Hub-City High Heel Hundred seeks to promote awareness of the continued need for women’s equity. The gender pay gap is a very real issue impacting society as a whole, and yet it is often overlooked. Women excel in their careers and continue to break glass ceilings – often while juggling the demands of family life or other obstacles.

Come run for the fabulous women in YOUR life. Whether you do it for yourself, your spouse, your daughter, your mother, your sister – or all of them – you will help us make great strides by simply acknowledging the value of these women.

All race registration proceeds will benefit SAFE Homes Rape Crisis Center, a non-profit organization serving victims of domestic violence and their dependent children in Spartanburg, Cherokee, and Union counties, and victims of sexual assault in Spartanburg and Cherokee counties.

Join Converse College as we empower women of today and prepare young girls for tomorrow.
