About this project
GOTR Council: Girls on the Run Vermont
Project Created on: 05/16/2018
Project Type: SoleMates
Support Girls On The Run Coaches ( that's me and 600 other volunteer coaches) and girls (3,000 VT participants) in Vermont for speaking up for what they believe. Girls on the Run (GOTR) is an international non-profit that teaches young girls to be confident in their own skin, to be a fierce friend to those around them and to be strong leaders for tomorrow!
Through training for a 5K, our team (that's 16-3rd, 4th and 5th grade girls, me and two other wonderful volunteer coaches) navigates how to stand up to a bully, learns the importance of inner beauty and develops leadership skills.
As a GOTR coach at Mater Christi Elementary School in Burlington, VT, I have fallen in love with the mission of this program and I think that it is now more important than ever. With all of the mixed messaging girls are receiving on a daily basis in our society,-- telling them they need to look a certain way, or that they can't become what they want simply because they are a girl-- we NEED to lift young girls up and show that we support them and we need to BE the example for them of achieving your dreams!
Please help me reach my goal of raising $1,000 dollars for Girls on the Run VT as I train and run the Vermont 10-Miler in Stowe, VT on November 2nd. The money raised will all be donated to Girls on the Run VT and will help fund their scholarship program which makes GOTR accessible to all girls who want to participate!
