An arm of the Minnesota Women of Today, the civic-minded ladies at Eagan Women of Today help fund local schools and charities while fostering lifelong friendships and a deep sense of community. The network of friendly volunteers and community leaders contribute to worthy causes and local non-profits while promoting a sense of fun and friendship with regular social events and outings.
For the third year in a row, Eagan Women of Today welcome their friends and neighbors to get fit while raising money for a good cause during their Sweatin to the 80s Charity 5k event. The race's retro theme allows participants to dust off their old wardrobe and hit the track in bold apparel such as Aviator sunglasses, neon-colored workout gear, or "John Anderson for President" campaign t-shirts. Lone runners, whole families, strollers, and pets join together to enjoy the fresh air of Trapp Farm Park, and pledge money to organizations such as the Dakota Woodlands, a scholarship from Eagan High School, Beyond the Yellow Ribbon, and Eagan Ambassadors.
