THE STORY:

As part of the Boston Marathon Charitable Running Program, I've teamed up with the Ann Bancroft Foundation to raise $$ and run miles!

All procedes go directly to the Ann Bancroft Foundation, which provides grants and mentorship to young girls.

I first saw Ann speak in 2001, and was struck by Ann's passion for adventure and message of dreaming Big. She had just completed a 94-day Antarctic Expedition and was truely living her foundation's mission to inspire courage, integrity and individuality in girls and women. My own experiences in athletics and on wilderness trips have had a substantial impact on my life, and I am excited by the mission of the Ann Bancroft Foundation to help other girls discover and explore their own passions, whether it be through wilderness exploration, participation in athletics, music or dance lessions, or participation in educational programs.

 Small contributions go a long way! For example:

  • $25 helps Minna buy 5 music books for music lessons
  • $50 helps Amelia attend Science Matters overnight camp
  • $75 helps Rhiannon participate in soccer season
  • $200 helps Latasha learn debate through the Youth in Goverment Model Assembly Program

Thank you for donating!
