About this project
GOTR Council: Girls on the Run NYC
Project Created on: 03/01/2018
Project Type: SoleMates
2018 will be my first TCS New York City Marathon. MY FIRST MARATHON EVER!! Please help me in supporting this great organization geared toward getting girls out and running!!
My journey to get here was a short, but exciting one. Starting last February when picking up a bib for a 4 mile run in Prospect Park, the longest distance I had ever run at that time, when a New York Road Runner employee asked if I was registered for the Air BnB Brooklyn Half in May. Before I could respond I was not, my partner in crime, Laura, responded with "not yet" and the rest is history. Or well 9+1. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would be running a half marathon, let alone THE NEW YORK CITY MARATHON! Now on November 4th I get to run it with 3 great friends!!
I have set a goal to raise $3,000 for Girls on the Run. For every $1,000 raised, 20 girls have healthy snacks for the season, lace up their first running shoes, and build endurance, confidence, and character with their amazing Girls on the Run coaches.
Thank you everyone for your support through this journey thus far and what's to come. Hope to see everyone in New York on November 4th!!
A little more about Girls on the run:
Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.Give Now
