“We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.” – Girls on the Run International.
My name is Hannah Sarnacki and I am raising funds for the Girls on the Run Program through the Boll Family YMCA. This incredible program isn’t just about getting girls out to run, it’s about encouraging healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls, inspiring self-respect and developing positive physical, emotional and social well-being.
Our goal this year is to provide sponsorships for 80 girls within the city of Detroit to participate in Girls on the Run Program. In areas where child obesity is altogether too common and the proper shoes to run in are hard to come by, our goal includes funding for healthy snacks, program fees and gear for the girls to run in (shoes, socks, shorts and a shirt).
Please note our suggested levels of giving:
Friend: $50 – sponsor one girl’s gear Cheerleader: $125 – sponsor one girl’s program fees Running Buddy: $175 – total sponsor for one girl (including gear & fees) Coach: $2,500 – sponsor a full team of girls!
So whether you are able to donate $20 or sponsor the full team, please know that you are making an incredible difference in the development of a young girl and that we truly appreciate your support!
