Want to run with Vanessa Williams and Dress for Success?
Vanessa Williams and hundreds of New Yorkers will participate in one-of-a-kind “Rack Relay Race” in Grand Central Terminal to donate professional clothing to the not-for-profit Dress for Success. Teams of four will compete to “dress” mannequins for success from racks of clothing donated by participants. Vanessa Williams and her friends and family will participate in a “Rack Relay Race” at noon.
Vanessa says, “There is truly no better time to get involved than now, so I ask all women to join our efforts by pledging their support online, joining us at our local events and participating in our New York City launch event. I have found my personal journey to success to be very fulfilling – though not without adversity – and learned early on that the key to success is expressing confidence in what you do. With our help, more women will have the opportunity to gain confidence and express success in their own lives.”
The public is invited to join Vanessa in the race by donating nearly new professional clothing and registering to race on ExpressSuccessCampaign.com. Tuesday, June 30th from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., participant races begin at 11:00 a.m. and Vanessa Williams will race at noon. NYC’s Grand Central Terminal, Vanderbilt Hall. Entrance at Park Avenue and 42nd Street.

Good Luck Vanessa!
