THE STORY:

I chose this charity because of how much running has positively impacted my life and becuase of how much I struggled when I was a young girl. Grade school was a difficult time for me. I was a shy girl, got made fun of, called names like many others and at some points had few friends. I was also trying to process my parents divorce at 11 years old. It would have helped me tremedously to be a part of a program like Girls on the Run during this time in my life and I want to help as many girls as I can have this amazing opportunity.

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.

Please help contribute to this amazing cause by donating today!
