About this project

GOTR Council: Girls on the Run NYC

Project Created on: 01/22/2018

Project Type: SoleMates

I am running in the 2018 New York City Marathon for Girls on the Run, a non-profit that gives >1,500 girls in low-income neighborhoods in NYC (and thousands more across the country) the chance to participate in curriculum-based physical activity. The program greatly impacts these girls' physical as well as mental health, increasing their confidence in themselves and their sense of community. As 1 of 2 girls on the 'boys' baseball team in elementary school and the only girl on my high school's cross country team for 2 years, the importance of a female-based team resonates strongly with me. Participating in sports growing up played a huge role in my confidence and perseverance- something I believe all girls, regardless of socioeconomic status, should have access to and can benefit from.
 
I am excited and fortunate to be running the NYC marathon and would greatly appreciate it if you would join me in donating to the cause- every dollar counts!
 
Thanks so much for your support! :)
