About this project
GOTR Council: Girls on the Run Vermont
Project Created on: 10/10/2018
Project Type: SoleMates
As many of you know, Girls on the Run Vermont is near and dear to my heart. I have had the honor to coach Kennedy and watch her become more confident by participating in the program. I've seen her want to help girls by training for her longest run ever and to raise money for GOTRVT along the way. I've witnessed the emotion and joy on so many girls' faces as they cross the GOTRVT 5k finish line, just radiating with pride from this big accomplishment. I've listened as parents tell me about the positive impact GOTR has had on their girls. They've learned life skills such as self-confidence, leadership, empathy, and cooperation.
I've also heard many folks tell me that they are not able to pay for the program. We NEVER turn a girl away from participating. We raise money all year so that we can help families who have financial limitations with the registration fee. Our SoleMates program is just one way we help raise these funds. As we enter our 20th year here in Vermont (WOW!), I'm asking that you help us raise money for our girls. If 25 of my friends and family each donate $20, I will reach my goal of $500 by November 4th. Any donation amount is greatly appreciated.
I JUST committed to this run and 10 miles is a stretch for me right now but I will do the work to train, if you can help with the fundraising! MANY THANKS!
