About this project
GOTR Council: Girls on the Run Charlotte
Project Created on: 01/09/2018
Project Type: SoleMates
Four years ago, a bunch of my 5th grade girls asked me to come run with them during their Girls on the Run practice. In one short hour, these girls had me hooked and when the next season came, I was their coach for the middle school program, Heart and Sole! Over the course of that fall, I saw what a huge impact Heart and Sole has for our middle school girls. Confidence, teamwork, leadership, excitement, hard work, friendship, patience, and girl power! The lessons my girls learned in Heart and Sole carried over into the classroom, and I watched them soar!
Many of the girls I teach cannot afford programs like Heart and Sole or Girls on the Run without scholarships, and every year, the generosity of complete strangers allows my girls to take part in this experience that truly changes the way they see themselves and the world around them. So now it's time to pay it forward and gift this opportunity to other girls in Charlotte. I'm running the Myrtle Beach Half-Marathon on March 3rd (my first!!) for the girls of Charlotte Heart and Sole and Girls on the Run!Give Now
