This year I'm so excited I made the choice to become a Girls on the Run coach! I have a wonderful group of 18 third and fourth grade girls who are dedicating their time after school to not just run, but to set and meet goals, build relationships with new peers, and learn empowerment skills that they will carry with them the rest of their lives! This is such an amazing program that helps me see the positive choices girls can make to set themselves up for success in life inside and outside of school. The only way that a program like this can happen at my school is through generous donations; any amount donated to Girls on the Run Chicago goes directly to the program which supports girls who may not otherwise have opportunities to participate in after school programs. Here's a bit more about the program: https://www.gotrchicago.org/ Girls on the Run-Chicago (GOTRC) has made a commitment to ensure that at least 50% of our programs are located in Chicagoland’s most under-resourced, low-income communities. To date, GOTRC has never turned a girl away due to her inability to pay, and will award more than $900,000 in financial assistance and subsidies this year. As we continue to experience rapid growth each year we need your help to sustain our life-changing after-school programming. Please help us continue to serve all girls by encouraging your friends and family to make a tax-deductible contribution today!
