GOTR Council: Girls on the Run NYC
Project Created on: 01/22/2018
Project Type: SoleMates
On November 4, I am running the NYC Marathon for Girls on the Run!! As a coach for the last four years for this transformative running-based program, I could not be more excited to have the funds I raised go to this important organization. Girls on the Run helps each girl 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. It helps each girl recognize her voice, her strength, and her inner star power through running!
From birth, I was diagnosed with a congenital heart block and was told throughout my childhood by the doctors that “she will never be a runner”. Three years ago I ran my first marathon! When someone encourages you and tells you that you CAN do something, it is motivating…but it can be almost as inspiring when someone tells you that you CAN'T!
I run like a GIRL - try to keep up J
