Happy Birthday to ME!
On May 19th I will be celebrating my 31st birthday and to celebrate my birthday, I'm asking friends and family to donate to Girls on the Run of Charlotte instead of getting me birthday gifts!
Since I'll be 31, I set my fundraising goal for 31 people donating $31 each to raise $961! This $961 will support 8 girls -the minimum number of girls to form a single GOTR team- in one 10-week season of the program!
> GOTR Charlotte serves over 3,200 girls annually at over 95 sites/schools in Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, and Lincoln Counties!
> GOTR was started in Charlotte in 1996 by Molly Barker with 13 girls at Charlotte Country Day School and now has over 220 councils nationally!
> This year GOTR will serve it's one millionth - Yes, ONE MILLIONTH!- girl Nationally!
Why am I donating my birthday to GOTR?:
After being involved with GOTR for almost three years, it is truly amazing how impactful this youth development program that "teaches girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident" is to girls not only during their time in the program, but far beyond into their adult years. All donations help to serve more girls in the program the Charlotte area!
Thank you in advance for your generous support!!!
