It was started in 2006 by three friends who were out running and found $100.00 and decided to start a race for women. Its sole purpose is to promote fitness, well-being, and a healthy and positive attitude in women of all ages and abilities. Approximately 2,000 women participate each year. Proceeds go directly to SafeHaven of Tarrant County, and collection stations on Race Day collect much needed supplies for the Arlington and Fort Worth shelters.
Leah Brady is a teacher at Miller Elementary in Arlington and is co-chapter leader of an Arlington running club called "Arlington Moms Run This Town". This coming year will mark the group's fourth year to participate in the annual Jiggle Butt Run. "Our group and this run have a natural connection since it's a ladies-only event. It's an empowering and supportive environment, encourages staying in shape, and the fact that it supports SafeHaven is huge," Leah said.
