Dress for Success Power Walk supports Wellington women

Dress for Success Power Walk supports Wellington women

Dress for Success invites Wellingtonians to take part in their annual Power Walk in support of Wellington women getting into work.

The walk is 5 kilometres along Wellington’s waterfront on Saturday 14 May.

Quality spot prizes and raffles are up for grabs including a night for two at Rydges Hotel, a three month membership to Les Mills, a lifestyle pack from Jeff Gray BMW and a subscription to Capital magazine.

“Often changing your life is about putting one foot in front of the other and taking the first step. Signing up for our Power Walk is a good way to show support for women who want to do this,” says Dress for Success Wellington President, Jane Fanselow-Price.

“This is the fourth year we’ve hosted the Power Walk. It’s a fun family-focused activity that people of all abilities can enjoy.

“Funds raised make a real difference to the lives of Wellington women on their journey to economic independence. We help them to be well presented and confident, as well as with interview and career skills.”

Registration starts in Frank Kitts Park from 9am with the walk starting at 10am. Entry is $20 per person or free for kids aged 12 and under.

Participants can register in advance on EventFinda or by emailing wellington@dressforsuccess.org
