EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
I am so happy to be raising money for Girls on the Run of NWI!! Running has become such an important part of my life and believe in the vision and efforts of this organization to make a positive impact on girls in our area.
(From GOTR website:) This organization offers running program for girls from 3rd to 8th grade that include lessons encourage positive emotional, social, mental and physical development. Participants explore and discuss their own beliefs around experiences and challenges girls face at this age. They also develop important strategies and skills to help them navigate life experiences. We start with helping the girls get a better understanding of who they are and what’s important to them. Then, we look at the importance of team work and healthy relationships. And, finally, the girls explore how they can positively connect with and shape the world.
