About this project

GOTR Council: Girls on the Run NYC

Project Created on: 01/22/2018

Project Type: SoleMates

Running has always been my outlet when I want to feel strong, empowered, and my very best. I remember my mom would take my sisters and I to the park when we were younger and while my sister splayed I would run around the track. Fast foreword to college, where distance running really became my saving grace. Running has transformed my life and marathons in particular have totally changed my perspective on how I approach each day. In 2018, more than 1,500 girls in New York City will participate in Girls on the Run, a transformative running-based program. That's more than 1,500 girls who - through their participation in Girls on the Run's evidence-based curriculum - each will gain a better understanding of who she is and what's important to her, recognize the value of team work and healthy relationships, build confidence to overcome the obstacles she faces, and know that she can positively impact and shape our world. Anyone who knows me know that my two biggest passions in life are empowering girls/women and fitness. This is the best combination and getting to run the race alongside my friend Allison is just the icing on top!
