BENEFITING: GIRLS ON THE RUN INTERNATIONAL
I will be running in the Disney Princess Half Marathon representing the charity Girls on the Run. This is a non-profit organization that incorporates running to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and to build confidence through accomplishment. It is a program that teaches social, psychological, and physical skills and abilities. At each season's conclusion, the girls compete in a 5k running event which gives them a sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving goals. Girls on the Run has over 120,000 volunteers and is now serving over 168,000 girls in over 225 cities.
