GOTR Council: Girls on the Run NYC
Project Created on: 07/24/2017
Project Type: SoleMates
Welcome Friends, Family, and Internet Stalkers!
As you can probably guess, I am running another half marathon this October! While I am always excited to sweat for 13.1 miles, this half marathon is particularly exciting because I will be using it as an opportunity to raise money for a program that I truly believe in. What's that, you ask? GIRLS ON THE RUN NYC!
Girls on the Run NYC, is a after-school program for girls in 3rd-8th grade that teaches life skills through dynamic lessons, discussions, and running! Over 10 weeks, the girls participate in 20 research-based lessons to help them build confidence, character, and competence, and play running games to train for a 5k! Not only does the program aim to help girls be healthy, but also to learn skills that will help them navigate their lives and grow up to be strong, confident, and healthy women (who run the world).
So, why give money (the real question)? Not every girl who wants to join can afford to participate or to purchase a necessary pair of running shoes. So, every dollar you contribute will allow more girls to discover their own confidence and power! Specifically:
So as you can see, I am very committed to the work of this organization and every dollar you contribute (even just $1)(or .50 cents), can make a difference for a girl that will last a lifetime. Give Now
