Girls on the Run Philadelphia Team up The Eagles Wide ReceiverPhiladelphia, PA - On Sunday, December 3, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Devon Allen and linebacker Patrick Johnson will don custom-designed cleats to support Girls on the Run Philadelphia (GOTRP) during their much-anticipated game against the formidable San Francisco 49ers.

This meaningful show of support is part of the NFL's 'My Cause My Cleats' program, which enables players to choose a cause that resonates with them personally and proudly represent their chosen organization on their cleats. For Allen and Johnson, GOTRP holds a special place in their hearts as they recognize the organization's invaluable work to empower and inspire young girls.

Girls on the Run Philadelphia is a locally-based nonprofit that delivers a powerful program to nurture courage, build confidence, and develop crucial life skills in girls. This organization has been making a tangible and positive impact on the lives of young girls in the Philadelphia area since 2012.

Paving the way for this exciting game, Girls on the Run Philadelphia has chosen to organize its twenty-first biannual 5K event at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. This highly anticipated run is more than just a race; it is a celebratory event that brings together participants from the Fall Season. It serves as a reminder of the importance of pushing past personal boundaries and building self-esteem through accomplishments.

During the game, GOTRP will be prominently showcased as one of the three outstanding local nonprofits specially chosen for the Community RedZone program, which was made possible through the collaboration of the Philadelphia Eagles and Philadelphia Insurance Companies. This program further amplifies Girls on the Run Philadelphia's mission and allows the organization to reach a wider audience, raising awareness about their vital work.

Colleen Kelly Howard, the Executive Director of Girls on the Run Philadelphia, expressed her heartfelt gratitude to the Philadelphia Eagles for their unwavering support in empowering girls during a vulnerable stage of life. The partnership with the Philadelphia Eagles has inspired over 6,500 girls to embrace joy, prioritize health, and pursue their dreams with unwavering confidence.

As game day approaches, the excitement is palpable both on and off the field. The Philadelphia Eagles' commitment to supporting Girls on the Run Philadelphia through the 'My Cause My Cleats' program and the Community RedZone program serves as a shining example of how the power of sports can be harnessed to uplift entire communities and make a lasting difference in the lives of young girls.
