THE STORY:

MY STORY:

I have been thankful to be a part of the Girls on the Run program each year at Avery Elementary in St. Louis for the past 4 years.  Each year I work with amazing young women and watch them work hard to train for their first 5k.  It is a wonderful program that encourages young women to appreciate what makes them unique and what makes others around them unique.  

Please help me give back to this organization by raising money for their scholarship program.  The scholarship allows more young girls to participate in this great program each year.  See below for more details as to how your money can help!

Thank you for your support.

Alexis

GOTR Impact:

Girls on the Run is an afterschool program for girls ages 8-14 that uses the power of running to inspire girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. The program combines training for a non-competitive 5k running event with interactive lessons that encourage positive social-emotional and physical development among participants. More than 85% of girls taking part in the program receive some sort of financial assistance to participate. All funds raised by the Girls on the Run SoleMates Team go to underwrite program scholarships so that any girl can participate in this life-changing programing, regardless of her family's ability to pay the program fee.

Approximately 85% of girls request and receive financial assistance to participate.

Every donation has a huge impact!

$10 will cover the cost of one girl's healthy snacks for a season
$25 will cover the cost of 150 bananas for the 5k finish line
$44 will cover the cost of 50 tiaras for the girls to decorate at the activities tent at the 5k
$152 will cover the cost of one girl to participate in the program for one season
$260 will cover the cost of water bottles for 400 girls
$335 will cover the cost of program t-shirts for 85 girls
$525 will cover the cost of all curriculum materials and supplies for 6 teams
$796 will cover the cost of training 20 new coaches
$988 will cover the cost of finisher medals for 650 girls
$1,500 will cover the cost of healthy snacks for 15 teams of 15 girls
$2,283 will cover the cost to implement the program at one new low-income site

On behalf of more than 1 million girls who have participated in GOTR throughout North America to-date and the 12,000 Girls on the Run-Chicago hopes to serve this year, THANK YOU!
