I have been involved with Girls on the Run for nearly two years as a coach and volunteer, and have seen firsthand the positive impact the program has on young girls. I am excited to further support GOTR while training for and running my first-ever marathon!

About Girls on the Run:
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.
