hubbub health is extremely excited to sponsor the Pacific Northwest chapter of Girls Inc. and their first annual Rappel for Her event held on August 19th and 20th in downtown Portland! Girls Inc. is an organization that empowers girls to be strong, smart, and bold, giving them the confidence and self-esteem to live bright and economically-independent futures.
With the Rappel for Her event, individuals are challenged with raising a minimum of $1,000 to be able to rappel 16 stories down 200 SW Market Street. All proceeds go to Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest.
“Women are underrepresented in leadership roles, especially in the health care industry,” shares hubbub CEO Beth Andersen. “Girls Inc. offers programs in financial literacy, leadership and STEM programs to help create tomorrow’s leaders. I believe – and hubbub believes – it is important for girls and women to advocate for themselves and this event is a great representation of that.”
hubbub has chosen to sponsor Halle, a long-time Girls Inc. member and former Girls Council representative, to rappel 16 stories down their corporate office. Halle is a bright, energetic, poised, and determined high school sophomore who is sure to accomplish great things in her life and future career choice.
