THE STORY:

Beyond excited to be running my third marathon and raising funds for Girls on the Run. The past two years we were able to raise more than $2,500 and I know this year will be the best one yet! This year I am dedicating this marathon run for my late Grandpa Bolek, who was also a runner. He is dearly missed and I hope to make him proud. 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. Together we can make a difference. I know this program makes such a huge impact on these girls lives, I still get messages from some of them that I was lucky enough to meet. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting my cause. Please feel free to share my donation link. Run. Run more. Do more. Marlena Begier
