About this project

GOTR Council: Girls on the Run Charlotte

Project Created on: 09/29/2015

Project Type: SoleMates

I’m running my first half marathon in November and I figured I might as well raise money for a charity while I’m at it! Girls on the Run is an amazing charity established in Charlotte that I recently stumbled upon while (ironically) I was running through my neighborhood. They provide pre-adolescent girls with the necessary tools to embrace their individual strengths and successfully navigate through life experiences. The program curriculum is 10 weeks long and consists of 24 lessons which incorporate running. Through this program young girls learn to understand themselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how they connect and shape the world at large. The money raised will provide these girls with scholarships who otherwise wouldn’t have the financial means to participate in the Girls on the Run program. No girl is turned away from their program for financial reasons which I find pretty amazing. The cost of the program per girl is $160 but hopefully we can raise enough for more than one! My goal is to reach $500 which means if 13 people sponsor ONE mile that I run ($38/mile) I will be able to attain this goal!
