About this project
GOTR Council: Girls on the Run Columbia
Project Created on: 08/25/2015
Project Type: Celebrations
When you hear "a million served" most people probably think of McDonalds. But did you know that Girls on the Run has empowered over a million girls to be joyful, healthy, & confident during the tender developmental years of 3rd through 8th grade? Girls on the Run is TRULY an extraordinary program.
In two weeks, I will turn 51 (gulp) and I can think of no better way to celebrate than by honoring this leadership program for girls. As Board Chair of our local Girls on the Run, I have seen firsthand the transformations cultivated in volunteers, donors, the Board, and of course, the girls themselves. We must give our youth the social, emotional, & physical skills they need to honor themselves, while embracing difference & finding strength through connection. Girls on the Run does exactly that. So, as I celebrate 51 years on this planet, I challenge you to celebrate with me, and make a donation towards sponsoring a team of girls who otherwise would be unable to participate. How much? It costs $2,500 to sponsor a team. That may sound like a lot, and it is, but as a mother myself, I know how genuinely priceless it is to gift children with experiences that make them thrive. SO, I have 2,500 reasons why I love Girls on the Run, HOW MANY DO YOU HAVE?Give Now
