Thanks for taking the time to visit my page!
I am excited to share that on November 4th, I will be joining thousands of others in running the 2018 NYC Marathon! Since having watched the marathon pass right in front of my apartment for the last three years, I’ve had this strong desire - especially as a non-native of New York - to experience the city (and the excitement) from this same perspective. When I couldn’t shake the idea of running in their footsteps, I knew there was no other way to take on my first 26.2 miles than for charity and have chosen to run in support of Girls on the Run NYC! Girls on the Run (GOTR) not only creatively integrates running while teaching young girls (grades 3rd-8th) skills around goal setting, overcoming obstacles, standing up for others and themselves, but also instills lifetime habits on how to be healthy, confident, and joyful! Over 60% of all Girls on the Run participants are able to join thanks to scholarships made possible by your generosity!
Last fall I had the pleasure of being a “Sparkle Runner” at the Girls on the Run end of season 5K back home in St.Louis, MO. It was amazing to watch as hundreds of young girls all waited anxiously to start their first big run with the confidence they gained throughout the program. I loved being there to encourage the girls along the way and knew that I wanted to do more with Girls on the Run. To see just how elated and accomplished each girl felt as they crossed the finish line truly meant more than I thought it could!
My goal is to raise $3500 for Girls on the Run NYC leading up to the marathon, and with your support I know I can get there!
Below are some ways your donations help to directly support Girls on the Run NYC!
$35 can sponsor a pair of running shoes for one girl. $50 can fund healthy snacks and a pair of running shoes for one girl for a full season! $75 can supply a team's program materials for the season! $100 can fund healthy snacks for a team of girls for a whole season! . $150 can provide healthy snacks and running shoes for three girls. $350 can support a full season scholarship along with running shoes and healthy snacks for one girl.
