Meet an awesome club making a huge difference for Girl Up. Led by President Kelsey Baez and Vice-President Rebecca Ruvulcaba, the Glen A. Wilson Girl Up Club in Southern California has more 60 members – including a number of guys! (See, guys, you can get involved in Girl Up, too!)
The club has organized some cool fundraisers: they hosted a bake sale and organized a Threads of Hope fundraiser, during which they sold bracelets made by families in the Philippines. The club incorporated some sportiness into their events this past year, too: they volunteered at a Girls on the Run Los Angeles 5K race during spring 2013 and also took part in the Orange County 5K to raise funds for Girl Up with fellow Southern California Coalition members.
To broadcast the importance of girls’ issues, the club hosted an informational booth at its local American Youth Soccer Organization’s registration day.
