About this project
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. I know how important exercise and sports have been in shaping my life and I am fortunate enough to provide my daughter with the same lifestyle and the equipment she needs to participate in sports and physical activity. In this era of empowering girls, I feel this charity was a perfect opportunity to help young females that may not have the guidance or the money to get out there and participate in physical activity with other young females and empower themselves.
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. 60% of the participants in the Girls on the run program come from low income homes.
If you could help me in reaching my goal of $5,000, it would be greatly appreciated! No donation is too small!
