BENEFITING: GIRLS ON THE RUN OF NEW ORLEANS
ORGANIZER: GIRLS ON THE RUN OF NEW ORLEANS
Mom, friend, coach, teacher, wife, runner, and a really good dancer, are all words that describe me. Fundraiser, not so much. But, that's about to change. As a GOTR coach, parent of a GOTR girl, ex-board member and current Program Director, I'm pretty much a know-it-all when it comes to Girls on the Run. And here's what I know: GOTR ROCKS! We get girls moving and active while building their self esteem and confidence. We show them how to stand up for themselves and how to make healthier and smarter choices. We do this for all girls that join GOTR, becasue no one is turned away. We are able to do this beacuse wonderful people like YOU donate to our cause. I'll be running the Classic on April 4 to raise money to help GOTR NOLA continue to expand and reach more girls! Any donation on your part will be greatly appreciate. Thanks, Coach Peggy
Support Girls on the Run New Orleans! – a life-changing, non-profit program for girls in the 3rd through 8th grade. Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.Running is used to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. At each season's conclusion, the girls and their running buddies, complete a 5k running event. Completing a 5k gives the girls a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. The result—making the seemingly impossible, possible and teaching girls that they can.
