BENEFITING: GIRLS ON THE RUN OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY
I'm dedicating my Griffith Park Trail Half to fundraise for one of the greatest organizations I know. I joined Girls On The Run last year as a coach and was able to see how much these girls gain by having the guidance that all the volunteer coaches provide. I'm currently serving on the board and would like to ask for your help by donating to this great program. As you know programs like GOTR sustain themselves by grants and donations and so I encourage you to help give these girls the gift of being part of an empowering program. Below you will see a short summary of who we are:
Girls on the Run of Los Angeles County is dedicated to helping pre-teen girls realize just how incredible they are.
Girls on the Run uses the power of running to prepare girls in 3rd – 8th grades for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living.
The programs combine training for a non-competitive running event with lessons that inspire them to recognize and honor their individual strengths and talents. The goals of the programs are to encourage positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development. With a detailed curriculum of games, activities, discussions, and running, girls experience the joy of simply being themselves!
