On Saturday, July 27, 2019, Dress for Success Tampa Bay will host The Power Walk for Dress for Success® from 7:30 AM to 10 AM at Westfield Citrus Park Mall, 8021 Citrus Park Town Center in Tampa. This annual event is a celebration of family, fitness, and financial independence.
“I am excited to be a part of this year’s Power Walk. Our 8th annual event continues to help raise funds and awareness to support women along the path to financial freedom. When we support women gain financial stability, it allows them to focus on a healthier lifestyle for themselves and their families,” said Elizabeth Urbanski, who serves as the Secretary for Dress for Success Tampa Bay’s Board of Directors.
More than 60 percent of Dress for Success clients are single mothers, yet they power through obstacles, overcome extraordinary challenges, and redefine possibilities for themselves and their families. Each mile on the 3.1 mile walk represents one of the three phases that these women experience as they journey along their path to personal and professional success—from being unemployed and searching, to recently employed and adjusting, to gainfully employed and succeeding.
The Power Walk for Dress for Success is the world’s only international 5k that promotes an active lifestyle and healthy living. It was first launched in New York City in 2010 as a “walking testament” to the need for success-driven women to become healthy in all aspects of their lives. The 2019 Power Walk for Dress for Success will take place in various Dress for Success affiliate cities, such as Tampa, across the country and around the world.
