BENEFITING: GIRLS ON THE RUN NYC
ORGANIZER: GIRLS ON THE RUN NYC
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am running the 2016 NYC Marathon to benefit Girls on the Run NYC. I am a first time marathoner and so excited to finally reach this bucket list goal with my younger sister, Katie (also on the team). I have a 1 year old daughter and strongly believe in supporting young women and helping them be their best, most confident selves. Please support this charity and my goal!
Your generosity can fund our program in many ways, including:
- $35 can sponsor a pair of running shoes for one girl.
- $150 can fund healthy snacks and a pair of running shoes for 3 girls in our program.
- $300 can support a full season scholarship, and healthy snacks and running shoes for one girl.
- $1,500 can support 5 girls (equivalent to half a team!) for a full season!
Any amount of donation is welcome!
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.
