THE STORY:

This year, I am fulfilling a dream of mine by running the 2016 Chicago Marathon!  In order for me to make it to the finish line, I need your help!  I have pledged to raise $1,500 for Girls on the Run.  It would mean so much to me if you could help by making a donation today.  Every donation has a huge impact.  Here is the link to donate: https://www.crowdrise.com/gotrchicagomarathon2016/fundraiser/justinelopez

What is Girls on the Run?  Girls on the run is an after-school program for girls ages 8-14 that transforms the way girls see themselves and their opportunities.  The goal of the program is to build confidence through accomplishment, while establishing a lifetime of appreciation of health and fitness.  The mission is achieved by volunteer coaches who meet with the girls twice a week for 12 weeks as they complete the curriculum which integrates running, goal-setting and training for a non-competitive 5k running event.  When girls participate in Girls on the Run they exhibit improved self-esteem, body size satisfaction and physical activity behaviors to a statistically significant extent. Girls show positive changes regarding attitudes towards physical activity, healthy behaviors and empowerment. 

Approximately 85% of all girls request and receive financial assistance to participate in the program which is why the funds I raise will go to underwrite program scholarships, ensuring that every girl can participate regardless of her family’s financial situation. 

$10 will cover the cost of one girl’s healthy snacks for the season.

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

$44 covers the cost of 50 tiaras for girls to decorate at the activities tent at the 5k

$157 covers the cost for one girl to participate in the program

Remember donations are TAX-DEDUCTABLE!!!!!!

Thank you!
