About this project
GOTR Council: Girls on the Run NYC
Project Created on: 01/22/2018
Project Type: SoleMates
After working with kids in New York City for over eight years, I've seen firsthand the huge dips in confidence, physically and academically, that girls face growing up. Running even small distances can give you a sense of pride and accomplishment and put you in the right state of mind to tackle homework, tests and other life challenges. And sometimes that's all it takes!
On November 4, I'll be 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.Give Now
