Fitness meets fashion at the store's benefit gala

Fitness meets fashion at Fleet Feet Columbus' Transcend the Run charity fashion show and gala.

The event, happening Thursday, Feb. 20, at 7 p.m. at Northpointe Conference Center, benefits Girls on the Run of Franklin County, a local organization that inspires young girls to be happy and healthy through running-based lessons.

Transcend the Run will have a silent auction, hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar. A fashion show featuring local fitness professionals in the latest active wear will begin at 7:30 p.m. The auction includes looks modeled on the runway.

Tickets are $30 presale and $40 at the door. Get them here.

The event is black tie optional, and Fleet Feet is hosting an after party starting at 9 p.m. with giveaways, discounts and an open bar.

The store hopes to raise $15,000 for Girls on the Run.
