THE STORY:

Hi....I am very proud to be running the Chicago Marathon--my fourth marathon--as a part of the Girls on the Run team! This program does amazing things for girls the ages of my own two daughters (the one millionth girl participated this season!) I have personally gained so much from running, and since the time my daughters began running, I have witnessed first-hand what it has done for their confidence, goal-setting,  and belief in themselves. Because of that, I feel that this is my year to give back. Please consider a donation of any amount. I am so excited to put in the work--and I promise to work harder than I ever have--and so with that, and a little bit of luck, I plan to run the race of my life. Thank you for your support! 

Girls on the Run, it is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) life-changing, after-school program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. Simply put, Girls on the Run transforms the way girls see themselves and their opportunities. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment, while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. The mission is achieved by volunteer coaches who meet with the girls as a team twice per week for 12 weeks as they complete the curriculum which creatively integrates running, goal-setting and training for a non-competitive 5k running event with interactive lessons that encourage positive social-emotional and physical development among participants.

Approximately 85% of girls request and receive financial assistance to participate.

Every donation has a huge impact!

$10 will cover the cost of one girl's healthy snacks for a season
$25 will cover the cost of 150 bananas for the 5k finish line
$44 will cover the cost of 50 tiaras for the girls to decorate at the activities tent at the 5k
$152 will cover the cost of one girl to participate in the program for one season
$260 will cover the cost of water bottles for 400 girls
$335 will cover the cost of program t-shirts for 85 girls
$525 will cover the cost of all curriculum materials and supplies for 6 teams
$796 will cover the cost of training 20 new coaches
$988 will cover the cost of finisher medals for 650 girls
$1,500 will cover the cost of healthy snacks for 15 teams of 15 girls
$2,283 will cover the cost to implement the program at one new low-income site

On behalf of more than 1 million girls who have participated in GOTR throughout North America to-date and the 10,000 Girls on the Run-Chicago hopes to serve this year, THANK YOU!
