THE STORY:

Hey everyone! Those of you who've known me for a long time know how completely running has transformed my life. I was never an athletic kid, I think partially because of the competitiveness I felt during school. I was uncoordinated, and slow, and usually picked last for teams in gym. It seemed like athleticism was something you either had or you didn't. I never realized that it was within my power to change that. So when I started running, slowly, just one lap at first, and then saw myself grow day by day, I learned that I was capable of so much moe than I realized. I'm still not a very fast runner, but if you told 20-year-old me that 25 year-old-me would be running in the New York City marathon, she would have never believed you. 

Girls on the Run recognizes that life-changing potential of running, particularly in an encouraging, growth-based environment. The only real competitor you face is your past self, and recognizing that can be a powerful force in changing your relationship with yourself, and the world around you. You begin to see that your body is on you side, that growth is the goal, that you are capable and valuable just for being a unique person in her own body. 

This is a program I really wish I had access to when I was younger, and so I feel really driven to support them and help to bring the program to as many girls as possible. I'd be so grateful for your support!

GIRLS ON THE RUN NYC wrote -

Meeting twice a week in small teams of 8-20 girls, we teach life skills through fun, engaging lessons and conversation-based running games. The 24-lesson curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork, and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large. Over the course of the program, girls will develop and improve competence, feel confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care and compassion, create positive connections with peers and adults, and make a meaningful a contribution to community and society.
