BENEFITING: GIRLS ON THE RUN NYC
ORGANIZER: GIRLS ON THE RUN NYC
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2016
I am very excited to be running my 4th half marathon on behalf of Girls on the Run!
When I moved to NYC, I was searching for a way to give back, and I found Girls on the Run about a year later. I have been volunteering with GOTR as a member of the SoleMates Committee, helping to recruit athletes and plan events for their training. In the past year I was able to attend two of the Girls on the Run 5Ks and seen firsthand how special this program is for the young girls who participate.
By raising $1,310 I will help to ensure that every girl who wants to participate in the program is able, no matter her financial situation. Please consider helping me reach my goal by donating today! Thanks!
More Information about GIRLS ON THE RUN NYC:
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.
