Project Type: Celebrations
Help us celebrate our 1st birthday with a donation! As we grow, we need donations to help us continue providing a high quality program. We want to get into more high needs schools. We want to provide more scholarships. We want to give good running shoes to girls in need. We want to make sure all our girls get healthy snacks at every practice. And we want to make sure we are able to set up our organization to be sustainable for the long-term.
Our fall season kicked off with 11 coaches and 40 girls. We had four teams who were willing to be our guinea pigs. We stumbled through. We fell on our faces a few times. But overall the season came together without any big set-backs. Our 5k event was held on a very cold, rainy Saturday morning in December. Instead of a bunch of whiny kids, we had a group of enthusiastic, excited, happy kids who ran and walked and skipped the 5k and finished with smiles, looks of accomplishments, and lots of pride.
Now we have started our second season with 125 girls and 35 coaches at 9 sites. We TRIPLED in size in one season! We were able to do that because our small group of eager individuals has grown to a much larger group of people strongly connected to our mission.
Our board has a goal to raise $5000 before our 1st Birthday Celebration. This money could provide scholarships for 30 girls to participate in our program. My individual goal is $500.
Please help us reach our goal and support our program.
