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 NYC - an awesome organization that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident through a transformative running-based program.
In 2018, more than 1,500 girls in NYC will participate in Girls on the Run (GOTR). That’s more than 1,500 girls who - through their participation in GOTR's evidence-based curriculum - will gain a better understanding of who she is and what’s important to her, recognize the value of teamwork and healthy relationships, build confidence to overcome the obstacles she faces, and know that she can positively impact and shape our world.
More than 60% of the girls in GOTR are in need of a financial subsidy to be able to participate. Your support allows GOTR to provide these girls with life skills and tools that will help them develop confidence and character as well as these specific gifts:
- $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
- $350 can support a full season scholarship along with running shoes and healthy snacks for one girl
- $1,500 can fund half of a GOTR team for a full season
It is more important than ever to create a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential, and is free to boldly pursue her dreams!
