THE STORY:

Thank you for visiting my fundraising link, and for supporting me as I run 26.2 miles to raise money for Girls on the Run! As many of you know, sports were, and continue to be, a big part of my life. Some of my greatest memories and friendships were forged on the playing fields, and I want to ensure that today's girls have even bigger and better opportunites through sport. Girls on the Run is a great organization that is achieving such goals, and I have pledged to raise $1,500 before race day in support of this amazing organization. 

Here's a little bit more about the program...

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.

I cannot achieve my goal without your help! Please consider donating today as every donation makes a difference, and will bring me that much closer to my goal!

Thank you for your support! I will see you at the finish line! :)
