BENEFITING: GIRLS ON THE RUN ORANGE COUNTY
ORGANIZER: GIRLS ON THE RUN ORANGE COUNTY
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
I was introduced to running in my late twenties; I hated it, ran a couple miles and gave up. Then a mentor started having me run again. This time running was different, it was empowering, and that was because I had someone guiding me. Running has stuck with me ever since. It's a time in my day I feel free and strong. A time to clear my head and breathe. Through running I achieved things I never dreamed possible.
When I found Girls on the Run, I instantly adored their charity. Their mission spoke to my heart. It says "We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running." How amazing is that?! I know first hand how much running can help someone, and I'm so proud to help raise money for this charity. Their vision and core values are awesome!!
