BENEFITING: Girls Gotta Run Foundation

EVENT: NU HARTFORD MARATHON AND HALF MARATHON 2014

EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2014

THE STORY:

My name is Erin Henderson. I am a marathoner, mom of 12, and board member for Girls Gotta Run Foundation. I am running the Hartford Marathon to raise money for Girls Gotta Run Foundation and to raise awareness for the International Day of the Girl on October 11, 2014.

Girls Gotta Run Foundation helps support and empowers young female runners in Ethiopia. Girls Gotta Run is helping young women in Ethiopia pursue their running dreams, and at the same time helping them to find pride, self-respect, confidence, a sense of well-being and personal power. While most of the girls do not become professional athletes, some of them do, and training allows the girls to stay in school, avoid early marriage, and to enhance their personal economic opportunities. The girls also become role models in their communities to other women and younger girls.

Just two years ago, the UN declared October 11 as the International Day of the Girl Child to raise awareness about all issues concerning gender inequality around the world. It’s a day when activist groups come together under the same goal to highlight, discuss, and take action to advance rights and opportunities for girls everywhere.

October 11 is not just a day; it’s a movement.

A worldwide revolution.

We want ourselves, and girls everywhere, to be seen as equals, in the eyes of others and in our own eyes.
