BENEFITING: GIRLS ON THE RUN GREATER BOSTON

ORGANIZER: GIRLS ON THE RUN GREATER BOSTON

EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017

THE STORY:

April 17, 2017 is going to be the BEST. DAY. EVER.

Why? You may ask... Not only is it this girl's big 3-0, but I get to spend it running one of the most historical road races in the world to benefit GOTR!  No words can desribe how happy I am to be be on the 2017 Girls on the Run Greater Boston Marathon Team!

Let me tell you a bit about the organization I am so very proud to represent. Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a life-changing, non-profit program for girls in the 3rd through 8th grade. The mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident women using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.  The 20-lesson GOTR curriculum combines training for a 5k running event with lessons that inspire girls to become independent thinkers, enhance their problem solving skills and make healthy decisions. The girls meet with their teams twice a week and are taught important life skills through dynamic, conversation-based lessons and running games. The curriculum focuses on understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large.

Running is used to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. Completing a 5k gives the girls a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. The result—making the seemingly impossible, possible and teaching girls that they can.

So where does your money go?  Funds raised through the Boston Marathon Official Charity Program will go towards the scholarship fund to ensure that every interested girl is able to participate regardless of their family's monetary constraints and will also help the organization expand into more towns, schools, and community centers.

Why should you donate?  Think of your daughters, your sisters, your nieces, your best friends... all those important ladies in your life! Don't you want to ensure all young women out there have the opporunity to foster a strong sense of self and confidence to accomplish their life goals. If yes, dig deep into your pockets and make a tax-deductible contribution to this amazing organization and tell all young girls out there, YES YOU CAN!
