Support Girls on The Run with A Love Lock Donation at The Dayton Mall in October

During the month of October, Girls on The Run of Dayton is the charity recipient of Love Lock donations at the Dayton Mall. You can support us in our mission to inspire 3rd through 8th grade girls to be joyful, healthy and confident by purchasing a $5 Love Lock from the Dayton Mall Guest Service’s Center and adding it the 10-foot tall Big Heart sculpture located near JCPenney. A variety of lock colors are available and await your messages of love, encouragement or remembrance. 100% of proceeds from October’s padlock sales benefit Girls on the Run – Dayton.
What are Love Locks? Many years ago, European sweethearts began inscribing their names on padlocks and affixing them to bridges as a symbol of their unbreakable love. They called their locks “Love Locks”. Dayton Mall has brought this practice to the Miami Valley and is using Love Locks to help local charities.
Congratulations to Up and Running
