About this project
GOTR Council: Girls on the Run NYC
Project Created on: 06/30/2018
Project Type: SoleMates
On November 4th, I will be taking on one of the biggest physical challenges I've ever taken on- running the 2018 New York City Marathon. This 26.2 mile race is something I will be training for over the next several months and I am so excited for the opportunity to step up to the starting line and have an awesome race!
As I have done previously, I am running this race as a Girls on the Run SoleMate, the charity program benefiting Girls on the Run NYC. Simply put, Girls on the Run (GOTR) is an organization that transforms the way young girls ages 8-13 see themselves and their opportunities. They do this by teaching girls about making healthy decisions and life skills, all while training for a 5k! Girls in the program learn about physical, mental, emotional, and social health, as well as experiencing the empowering feeling of crossing a finish line after weeks of hard work!
As a former Girls on the Run coach, GOTR is something I hold close to my heart and I believe strongly in the organization’s positive impact they have in regards to their vision of creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. This is why I have set an ambitious fundraising goal of $3,600. Your donation is completely tax deductible and you will receive documentation from Girls on the Run NYC to use for tax purposes. Please send any donations that you would like to make by November 7, 2018.
Here are some examples of what your donations will go towards:
- Running Shoes for a Girl: $25
- T-Shirts for a Team of Girls: $50
- Team Snacks for a Season: $100
- Sponsor a Girl: $160
- Transport a Team to the 5K: $500
- Sponsor 1/2 team for a season: $1200
- Sponsor a Team: $2,500
I truly appreciate your help with this effort. Together, we can create a world of healthy, happy, active girls who believe anything is possible. I know that when I cross the finish line, I’ll be one of them!Give Now
