BENEFITING: GIRLS ON THE RUN NYC
ORGANIZER: GIRLS ON THE RUN NYC
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Thanks so much for visiting my fundraising page! I'm really excited about running my first NYC marathon this year as a SoleMate of GIRLS ON THE RUN (GOTR), an amazing program for young girls you can learn more about here below. Any contribution you can make, little or big, will help make a big difference for these girls. I really appreciate your support and look forward to tackling this goal with you!
Meeting twice a week in small teams of 8-20 girls, GOTR teaches life skills through fun, engaging lessons and conversation-based running games. The 24-lesson curriculum is taught by certified GOTR coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork, and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large. Over the course of the program, girls will develop and improve competence, feel confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care and compassion, create positive connections with peers and adults, and make a meaningful a contribution to community and society.
