Support Team Girl Scouts NYC at the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon! Funds raised will support Family Partnership, a way for members of our Girl Scout community to invest in the future of our girls today!
Kelly adds: "I'm running the New York City Marathon to help support my very favorite cause -- the Girl Scouts! Did you know that every woman U.S. astronaut AND Senator was a Girl Scout? I like to call us the secret weapon for training America's past, present and future leaders. My favorite Girl Scouts are in Daisy Troop 2302 of Brooklyn, a curious, bright, empathetic ready-for-anything group of 5- and 6-year-olds I am lucky enough to help lead. (And one of them is mine. :) ) So far we have learned about safety (pictured here), the environment, learned to sell cookies -- and donated the profits to feed hungry children, and given back to our host church by planting flowers in the garden. Now we are working on a suffragette patch AND getting ready for our first-ever weekend camping trip. Did I mention that they are only in kindergarten and first grade? I love to run, almost as much as I love these girls, so I'm using that passion to raise awareness for these Daisies, and thousands of other girls like them. Let's help make it possible for them to continue to learn about their full potential, build confidence -- and make lifelong friends along the way. Please give whatever you can -- thank you!!!!!"
