THE STORY:

Welcome to my Girls on the Run Chicago Marathon fundraising page. I am elated to be running my second Chicago Marathon and even more honored and blessed to be doing for for an amazing charirty! Below you will read a little about GOTR, but let me tell you why I love everything they stand for. 

In a world where tv, print ad, and social media are provoking an unhealthy and unrealistic self image for females, I feel we strong, positive females to get the message across that we are all beautiful and amazing, and that our uniqueness is what makes us, us. Growing up I feel we didn't have the support we needed as yound girls to educate us on self respect and living a healthy lifestyle. I had a very unhealthy image of myself and incredibly unhealthy ways of deal with it. Why not use my running and past as a platform to help other girls who need that support and guidence to become the best strong and healthy woman they can be. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my page and read my story. With your donation you helping provide the self esteem that soo many young girls are lacking in this world today. 

Girls on the Run - Chicago wrote -

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.

For all the girls that are unable to do this or can't afford to, or just won't do this due to self esteem issues. It's not an issue of winning in the end it's about doing and following through with something you have started. Showing people you have the confidence in yourself and are committed in doing your best. We live in a world that is full of chaos and pain. It's up to you to push through the things you are afreaid of or think you can't do. This is about you so go enjoy yourself and feel good about yourself because in the end YOU DID IT! BE PROUD! 1 year ago
