EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
In April 2013, after 7 months of living in Boston with no desire to run more than my weekly 3 miles, I put running the Boston Marathon near the top of my bucket list, and am so thankful that this year the GirlScouts of Eastern Mass. are giving me an opportunity to finally cross it off.
12 years and two troops later (shoutout Troops #144 & #118), Girl Scouting was a huge part of shaping who I am today. Over the years I had such amazing experiences which included numerous volunteering opportunities, regularly camping with friends, failing at most art&crafts projects, learning how be a leader, and even dressing up like a Thin Mint to make a buck during cookie season, which was always my favorite time of year.
Girl Scouting gave me so much over the years and I am so excited to help support the Girls Get Healthy Initiative!!! =)

The Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts is committed to offering health and wellness programs through the Girl Scouts Get Moving health/wellness initiative that educates girls on how to stay healthy and keep moving. The Girl Scouts Get Moving health/wellness initiative is a holistic two part initiative consisting of programmatic and event/workshops.
