About this project
GOTR Council: Girls on the Run NYC
Project Created on: 01/22/2018
Project Type: SoleMates
Hello! So, I have spent a lot of time running over the past 10+ years. I recently had a truly life changing experience with running a marathon PR at the Little Rock Marathon. From this experience, I've learned that I am capable of far more than I ever thought possible with a lot of hard work and determination. I've decided to run another marathon - the NYC Marathon, and I want my race to be about more than just another marathon PR or medal. I want to share my life changing experience with others, especially young girls and women who are seeking to run as well. I am running the NYC Marathon for Girls on the Run NYC!
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.
I'm really excited to run the NYC marathon for more than the medal and hopeful race PR. I hope you'll help me reach my goal to help impact thousands of young girls' lives! Thank you so much in advance! Here are some of the things the money we raise will be put toward:
--$35 can sponsor a pair of running shoes for one girl.
--$150 can fund healthy snacks and a pair of running shoes for 3 girls in the program.
--$300 can support a full season scholarship, and healthy snacks and running shoes for one girl.
--$1,500 can support 5 girls for a full season!Give Now
