BENEFITING: Girls on the Run - Chicago
ORGANIZER: Girls on the Run - Chicago
EVENT: GOTR Chicago Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
Hello all! I am running the Chicago Marathon to raise money for Girls on the Run - a nonprofit that provides afterschool programs to empower young girls for positive emotional, physical, social, and mental development. Empowerment defines everything I have, and continue, to do. I run because of the incredible feeling of empowerment that comes along with it. I've worked in micro-finance and economic development to empower women in Uganda. I now work in finance literacy and planning to empower others (especially women) to make good decisions about their finances. All support, whether just encouragement, or monetary, will go towards continuing the theme of empowerment. Thank you!
