About this project

GOTR Council: Girls on the Run Delaware

Project Created on: 05/11/2017

Project Type: Girl Power


As you may already know, I'm participating in Girls on the Run.    It is a great program that teaches young girls self-respect, self-esteem, confidence and importance of teamwork.    They do it all through running.  I have been training for the past six months and will have my 5K on May 20th  in Wilmington Delaware. I learned so many valuable lessons while doing girls on the run program. Two most important things that I learned are say no to bullying and be yourself.  

 I am very fortunate  that my family can afford for me to participate in this program. However, not all the girls are. I am running an extra mile this year to raise funds for girls whose families cannot afford to pay for the program.    The funds I'm raising will all go to pay for sneakers, shirts,  water bottles and program participation for the girls who cannot afford it  

 I would really really appreciate if you could support my extra mile and make a donation to this program. Every dollar counts!  Thank you so much and please come and cheer for me and my teammates in Wilmington on May 20th at 9am.

Best wishes,
