I am a Girls On The Run coach at our local elementary school. Along with 6 amazing women, we lead 32 fantastic 3rd -5th grade girls in a 12 week empowerment program, a community service project and 5K race. During the program we meet twice a week with our girls to discuss and reinforce topics such as accepting challenge, encouraging and standing by peers and developing and maintaining healthy habits and behaviors. These messages are so important to girls at their impressionable age-especially in this day and age where peer pressure and bullying have taken on a whole new level with the introduction of social media in to their lives.
Did you know that over half of our GOTR gals nationwide are able to participate in this program because scholarships are made available to them? I'm running the Chicago Marathon to raise scholarship funds for GOTR. Every dollar I raise will go directly to the scholarship program for GOTR! The gifts of empowerment and strength should be spread to all of our girls!
Help me help them and I will make it across the finish line at 26.2 out of respect for you and in honor of them!!
