THE STORY:

I am running my first marathon on October 9th. Back in May, I chose to run the Chicago Marathon as a Girls on the Run Solemate. Knowing that I am running to support Central IL Girls on the Run,has helped me push through each long run.  Funds I raise will provide scholarships to those in need  so that ALL interested girls will be able to participate in the program.

Girls on the Run is an afterschool program for girls ages 8-14 to learn what they CAN do. The mission of the program is to INSPIRE girls to be joyful, healthy and confident through a 12 week program which incorporates running. Each 12 week session ends with a 5K non-competitive run. The Fall 2016 Session started just a few weeks ago.

A friend's daughter recently completed the program and said, "Girls on the Run was fun. We learned how to encourage each other and to be helpful. I enjoyed the Community impact project by cleaning up the playground at my school. It was also fun to run!"

GOTR is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, so all donations are tax-deductible! The funds will be kept local (Central IL Girls on the Run). Thank you for visiting my fundraising page and please consider making a donation to this great organization!
