THE STORY:

THE STORY:

Thanks for checking out my fundraising page! As a Girls on the Run coach, I have witnessed first hand the positive impact of this program on young girls. If you are reading this, you likely understand the influence of athletics, teamwork and competition in my life; as well as my passion for encouraging girls to develop their leadership skills. This year I co-coach a team of 20, 5th grade athletes Fifty percent of our team participation is sponsored through scholarships funded by charity efforts such as this, keep reading to learn more about GOTR.

About Girls on the Run: 

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!

$25 will cover the cost of 150 bananas for the 5k finish line
