Beyonce asks the eternal question, "Who run the world?" I answer it, "Girls!"
I'm running the Chicago Marathon as a Girls on the Run SoleMate. My goal is to raise $1500 so that more girls can participate in this fabulous and transformational program. Your contribution will support girls in both Boston and Chicago.
If you would simply like to give, that is welcome and appreciated. If you'd like something for your money, let me know what you'd like in your comment or message me. I can offer the following:
- a custom poem about you- probably a lymeric
- a service- gardening, cleaning, sitting of the child or pet variety
- a custom art work- a portrait of you as your favorite animal or maybe a craft
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Why I Run
I have been involved with Girls on the Run for the past five years. Despite my experience and my icy, icy soul, I am moved to tears at every 5K when I see the looks of confindence and achievement on the faces of girls as they cross the finish line.This program not only teaches girls that they can start and finish something big, but it also teaches them how to be joyful, healthy, and confident.
Here are just a few of the thousands of reasons why I love this program enough to hound you for money:
-It helps girls thrive.
-It helps EVERY girl feel smart, capable, confident, and valued.
-It lets her know that she can embrace who she is, define who she wants to be, rise to any challenge, and can change the world.
Many thanks for your support. Together, we are doing good work to make the world a little better for girls.
With love and sparkles,
