BENEFITING: Girls on the Run - Chicago
ORGANIZER: Girls on the Run - Chicago
EVENT: GOTR Chicago Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
Well, folks, I'm at it again. I am running the Chicago Marathon for the second year in a row. Why, you may ask? For two reasons.
Reason one: my own pride and personal drive. You see, I didn't run the whole thing last year. I had to walk about 10 miles because of a previous injury. And I just couldn't let that stand. This years goal is to at least run the whole thing in 4.5 hours or less. Good luck wishes will be accepted along with donations.
Reason two: I love supporting Girls on the Run. Take a second right now and just Google them. Read the info on the website, watch some of their videos. Go ahead, I'll wait.
Amazing right?!? Running is such a powerful tool for learning, especially learning about your self and what you're made of, who you are as a person. The work GOTR does with young girls is important because it gives them self confidence and teaches them commitment and endurance even in the face of self doubt. Your contribution can help a girl realize her inner potential and get on the path to becoming a strong, confident woman.
So donate. Because we're all so much stronger than we think we are.
