BENEFITING: GIRLS ON THE RUN NYC
ORGANIZER: GIRLS ON THE RUN NYC
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Family and Friends -
Since 2009, Girls on the Run NYC (GOTR NYC) and I have had an incredible journey, and this wonderful organization will always have a special place in my heart.
That is why this November I'm honored to be running the NYC Marathon as a SoleMate. I'll be taking on those 26.2 miles across all five boroughs, so that GOTR NYC can continue to build a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
What is Girls on the Run? It is a transformational youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade, where running is used as a vehicle to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.
Girls on the Run NYC is growing rapidly each season! And, over 60% of our girls are in need of financial subsidy to be able to participate in our transformational program. By supporting Girls on the Run NYC, you will help more girls in the New York City community be able to enroll in this incredible experience.
Every donation makes a difference in the lives of the girls in our program. Your generosity can support:
- a pair of running shoes for one girl: $35
- healthy snacks and a pair of running shoes for one girl: $50
- healthy snacks and a pair of running shoes for three girls: $150
- a full season scholarship for one girl: $300
- a full season scholarship for five girls: $1,500
While our girls build confidence and train to complete their first 5k, I'll be preparing to run those unforgettable 26.2 miles on November 6th. But we can not do it alone. As someone who has been involved at every level of Girls on the Run, I have seen firsthand the incredible impact that this program has not only on the girls, but on every person who touches the program.
Your love and support mean the world. Thank you again for helping me reach this tremendous goal.
Learn. Dream. Live. Run.
