THE STORY:

Running has changed me in so many ways, after qualifying, training and completing my first marathon in NYC in 2015, it gave me power! It was a true testament that I could complete ANYTHING that I set my mind to. I would like all girls to have that feeling.  This is why I am raising funds for Girls on the Run.

GOTR is an afterschool program that transforms the way girls see themselves and their opportunities. The goal is to unleash confidence through accomplishment, while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. The mission is achieved by volunteer coaches who meet with the girls as a team twice per week for 10 weeks as they complete the curriculum which creatively integrates running, goal-setting and training for a non-competitive 5k (3.1 miles) running event with interactive lessons that encourage positive social-emotional and physical development among participants.  

On Sunday, October 8, 2017, I am running 26.2 miles to participate in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon in order to raise money for GOTR-Chicago. Here's why:  A strong sense of self and confidence is critical to a young woman's healthy and happy living.  GOTR teaches a girl how to push past her perceived boundaries and do the seemingly impossible. My goal is to raise $1,500.00 before race day.  This money is important.  GOTR is a non-profit organization.  The program cannot survive without donations. More than 85% of girls taking part in the GOTR program receive financial assistance. All funds raised by this Team go to underwrite program scholarships for GOTR-Chicago so that any girl can participate in this life-changing programing, regardless of her family's ability to pay the program fee.  Please consider donating.  


EVERY donation has an impact.

-$10 covers the cost of one girl's healthy snacks for a season.

-$25 covers the cost of 150 bananas for the 5k finish line.

-$44 covers the cost of 50 tiaras for girls to decorate at the activities tent at the 5k.

-$157 covers the cost for one girl to participate in GOTR-Chicago for one season.

-$260 covers the cost of water bottles for 400 girls.

-$525 covers the cost of all curriculum materials and supplies for 6 teams.

-$988 covers the cost of finisher medals for 650 girls.

-$2,283 covers the cost to implement the program at one new low-income site.


Today, with one donation, you can help shape strong, confident, healthy, happy and successful girls.Thank you for taking the time to read about my fundraiser.  See you at the finish line of The Bank of America Chicago Marathon on Sunday, October 8, 2017!
