About this project

GOTR Council: Girls on the Run Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC

Project Created on: 02/06/2017

Project Type: Celebrations

The fall Girls on the Run season starts September 18th!  Fall sights, sounds and smells remind me distinctly of cross-country season.  Seeing teams around Pittsburgh train reminds me how I got nervous for every single meet no matter how big or small.   I ran with all of my might and learned to accept the wins and losses with a mindset that I will work hard no matter what the outcome and I will support my teammates.  Help me push past the $2,000 mark this month of September. Every donation to my #tourdeforty  campaign supports a girl who is activating her limitless potential.  From February through December 2017, I will complete at least one race or adventure in efforts to raise scholarship and shoe funds for Girls on the Run.   Many of these events will also help other fantastic non-profit organizations like the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Achilles International and Ronald McDonald House Charities.    

In southwestern Pennsylvania, our Girls on the Run Magee staff works hard every day to ensure that every girl who requests financial assistance to join the program will receive it.  Reaching a personal fundraising goal of $4,000 means that 22 girls from disadvantaged households will receive a FULL program scholarship and gain and improve competence, feel confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care, create positive connections with peers and adults, and make a meaningful contribution to community and society.   Girls on the Run gives girls a fun, positive environment to set goals and focus on personal improvement and my own running/life mantra continues to be:

  • Run your own race.
  • Run the mile that you are in.
  • Run for those who can’t.
