About this project
GOTR Council: Girls on the Run Rockies
Project Created on: 02/06/2018
For over ten years, running has been one of my hobbies. After five half marathons, I decided that it's about time to give a full marathon a try. I will be running the Colfax Marathon in Denver on May 20th, 2018!
As I was considering organizations to fundraise for, Girls on the Run came to mind. I first heard of Girls on the Run when I lived in Arkansas. My friend Sara and I ran a (very cold!) 10K in support of the program. Girls on the run is a 501(c)(3) organization that strives to inspire young women through running. It encourages young women to be healthy, to challenge themselves, and to be confident. My goal is to raise $250 for Girls on the Run. Girls on the Run does not turn participants down due to inability to pay, so fundraising is important! According to the website, a gift of $35 sponsors a 5k participant, $50 buys a pair of running shoes, and $170 buys a season-long program sponsorship.
