About this project

GOTR Council: Girls on the Run NYC

Project Created on: 01/22/2018

Project Type: SoleMates

Hello! I'm back to my crazy and fun running journeys! I have officially started training for the TCS New York City Marathon in November. Let's bring on marathon #2! Just like last time, I am fundraising for Girls on the Run (GOTR). I've been a coach, running buddy, or volunteer for Girls on the Run for the past six years. GOTR is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) life-changing, after-school program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. The program volunteers teach the girls self-worth through an age appropriate curriculum. Participants train for a 5K as they learn to overcome obstacles and work together for a common goal. Approximately 85% of girls request and receive financial assistance to participate. To help as many girls as possible this year I set a goal to fundraise $3,600 for GOTR. This is triple the goal I set last time and I can't do this without your help! Every donation has a huge impact! Even just $15 will cover the cost of one girl’s healthy snacks for an entire season! Any contribution will help GOTR continue to make a positive impact in the lives of girls across the nation. Remember that all donations are tax-deductable! :) If you'd like more information about Girls on the Run please watch "The Finish Line is Just the Beginning" a short documentary about the program.

Your donation can support:
-a pair of running shoes for one girl:  $35
-snack and running shoes for three girls:  $150
-a full season scholarship for one girl:  $300
-a full season scholarship for five girls:  $1,500
