The Margaret Geis Wright Wellness 5k Run/Walk is a community building event that helps support Girls to Women, an innovative, grassroots, non-profit, girl-centered youth development program that now serves upwards of 60 girls a year with intensive, individualized school-year and summer enrichment programs. For more information on Girls to Women please visit our website. This event is in honor of Margaret Geis Wright.

Who Was Margaret Geis Wright? Margaret Geis Wright, a native of Kansas, was a storyteller, theater patron, mother, grandmother, and benefactor of East Palo Alto's youth. She supported wellness programs for our community's girls, and was a friend to those working with local young people. Margaret, or 'Sam' as she was known to those close to her, was non-judgmental; saw good in everyone; loved children in particular; and had the gift of inspiring the best in the many whom she touched with her kindness. Ms. Wright's compassionate wisdom is distilled in this saying of hers: "Be an avid knowledge-seeker . . . know yourself and be yourself . . . and nothing can stop you from being whatever you want to be."
