BENEFITING: Girls on the Run - Chicago
ORGANIZER: Girls on the Run - Chicago
EVENT: GOTR Chicago Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
Hi Everyone! I'm signed up to run the Chicago Marathon again this year (October 9 - marathon #4 and hopefully Boston qualifier) This year, though, I'm raising money for Girls on the Run while I train and run. Girls on the Run is an after school program for girls 3rd-8th grade that uses running to teach and empower grills mentally, physically, emotionally, and socially. It's positive Girl Power!
My goal is $1,500 and the finds I raise go to scholarships for girls who couldn't afford the program otherwise. I was a coach when I lived in Grand Rapids and have seen first hand the friendships and personal growth these girls get out of the program. Plus they run!
If you know me, you know that this is the perfect combination of 2 things I'm passionate about: empowering and uplifting women and girls and running.
If you're able, please consider donating to this fantastic cause and helping me reach my goal. Please also consider passing this email and fundraising site (below) along to friends, coworkers, or anyone else who will support Girls on the Run and their mission of developing the strong women of the future!
Thank you in advance for any help you're able to give (financial or otherwise!) And thank you for supporting me in meeting both my fundraising goal and my running goal of qualifying for the Boston Marathon at this year's Chicago!
