Drew Academy Girls on the Run

THE STORY:

"So now I can say without any problem whatsoever, I am a Girls on the Run participant so now if I can accomplish this marathon, I can accomplish anything!"- Carly, age 9

Girls on the Run is not 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. At the end of each three month session, the girls participate in a Girls on the Run 5k event. Crossing the finish line is a defining moment when the girls realize that even the seemingly impossible IS possible.

Our goal is to provide scholarships for TEN girls at Dr. Charles Drew Academy to participate in the upcoming season. DCDA is a Title I school, with approximately 98% of students receiving free lunch. The students do not have a health class in school, and many don't know how to live a healthly lifestyle, receive proper nutrition, or receive any physical activity. GOTR embraces all these topics. 

Can you help us make this goal possible?
