About this project

GOTR Council: Girls on the Run Rhode Island

Project Created on: 11/20/2015

Project Type: Celebrations

I've always heard the concept of things in life coming full circle, but it wasn't until recently that I had the amazing opportunity to feel this in action for myself. I'm so excited to tell you that I found an organization that has truly touched my heart, and I am proud to become a volunteer for. They are Girls on the Run (GOTR), and this is their vision: We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.

As a child, I grew up overweight, not fitting in and a target for many to make fun of me. I was not active. I knew nothing about a proper nutritional diet. I had little to no friends or adults I could confide in. If only GOTR was around when I was young!!! But now, as an adult on my path into understanding and loving myself and wanting to share love and happiness all around, I truly know with all my heart that being a volunteer for Girls on the Run is the best next step I can take in my journey.

"At Girls on the Run, running is not just a metaphor. We use this activity to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. At each season’s conclusion, the girls and their adult running buddies, complete a 5k running event. In some cities this is a huge community-wide event and in others, it’s an intimate and inspiring gathering of friends and family. The results are the same—making the seemingly impossible, possible."

So, all I want for Christmas is for you all to open your hearts and if you find it possible, to donate to this wonderful organization. I thank you all in advance for your support and love!!!
