BENEFITING: Girls on the Run - Chicago
ORGANIZER: Girls on the Run - Chicago
EVENT: GOTR Chicago Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
In October I will be running the Chicago Marathon for the Girls on the Run charity and as part of the GOTR fundraising team of runners. GOTR plays a crucial role in providing life-changing afterschool programs for more than 10,000 girls in the Chicago area annually. The money that I raise here will go to the area's most under-resourced communities to support current programming and enable more girls to join GOTR.
Girls on the Run is a program for 3rd through 8th grade girls with a highly interactive curriculum that combines self-esteem enhancing lessons with uplifting workouts aimed to develop the whole girl: her physical, mental, emotional, and social self. Young girls are empowered with a greater self-awareness, a sense of achievement, and a foundation in team building for them to become strong and self confident women.
Through your donation, these girls will be provided an environment in which they can thrive.
Thank you for all of your support!
