About this project

GOTR Council: Girls on the Run NYC

Project Created on: 07/01/2018

Project Type: SoleMates

On November 4, 2018, I am running the NYC Marathon to support Girls on the Run NYC. Girls on the Run is a transformative running-based program that provides school aged children the opportunity to exercise in a group, non-competitive atmosphere, where each girl is important. This opportunity allows girls to learn how to achieve a goal, work hard and experience difficulty, learn team building values, and most importantly, gain the confidence to make positive change in her own life and in the lives of others. I have a 7 year old daughter who I look forward to participating in Girls on the Run in our small Maine town. As a girl growing up in NYC, I know I would have benefitted from the confidence building that GOTR supplies, and I can't wait to support this organization as it helps the girls of NYC form more secure and positive futures for themselves. These girls are our future. We need to give them the best chance at making our world a better place. I think GOTR can be an integral part of this process.
