About this project

GOTR Council: Girls on the Run Snohomish County

Project Created on: 05/18/2016

Project Type: Celebrations

A little over a year ago, I had supported a campaign to bring Girls on the Run to Snohomish County. I gave what I could at the time, and helped kickstart this program. One year later, Girls on the Run of Snohomish County has flourished, and has had over 170 girls go through the program in the first year! Our mission is to empower girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

In March of this year, I jumped at the chance to be part of the Board for the Snohomish County chapter of Girls on the Run, and I am so excited to see our program reach more and more girls each year. As a celebration, I am raising funds for this amazing program so we can bring Girls on the Run to more schools and more girls each season. Our goal as a board is to raise a total of $5000. 

What does your money help pay for at Girls on the Run? 

$15 covers healthy snacks for one girl for a season
$25 covers background checks for four volunteer coaches
$50 covers good running shoes for a girl in need
$75 covers nice finisher medals for 40 girls
$100 covers materials for one Coach Kit (all materials for a team for the season)
$165 covers one full scholarship for a girl in need
$225 covers healthy snacks for an entire team for a season
$500 covers curriculum materials for five teams
$1,000 covers CPR/First Aid training for 16 coaches
$2,500 covers the full cost of a team of 15 girls

What is a birthday celebration without gifts? As part of my fundraiser, I am giving away gifts! 

For any amount up to $50, I will be sending you a little "thank you" gift in the mail. For any amount over $50, I will be sending you a box of delicious goodies. For any amount over $100, I will be sending you goodies AND a Girls on the Run hat!

All donations are tax deductible and our tax id number is 47-3083211. Donations of all sizes are welcome! One of our goals is to get 170 individual donations to honor the girls we’ve reached during our first year.

Let's see how much we can raise for the girls of Snohomish County!

Thank you for your generosity and support!
