IPC's 2016 Bridge the Gap 5K

A big thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Bridge the Gap 5K! Although it was a rainy walk, we all had a lot of fun. Check out the IPC's Facebook page for photos from the race day in Portland and virtual 5K's as far away as Japan!

The Bridge the Gap 5K is about more than a fun time together. We are partnering together to make it possible for more girls to participate in a Princess Club. Girls are mentored by women from their community. They are empowered with their true identity and value. While many girls have experienced a Princess Club, more programs are waiting to start. Because of the Bridge the Gap 5K, we are closer to making that happen! Thank you!

Become an IPC Champion!

You can help make it possible to empower the girls who are waiting for a Princess Club in their neighborhood. Find out the different ways to be involved by clicking here. 

Email us to inquire about how your particular passion and gifting can make an impact! Each of us is uniquely designed to shine a light for others to see. Join us and become a Champion today!
