THE STORY:

I am running the Chicago Marathon to raise money for Girls on the Run. Girls on the Run is a program that combines training for a non-competitive 5k running event with interactive lessons that encourage positive self-image for girls twice a week after school. 

This past year, I watched my students push themselves to run each week more and more. We celebrated small victories and learned about confidence, self-esteem, and self-empowerment during each lesson. When race day finally came, the girls were excited to finally prove they could finish a 5k race. It was cold and rainy, but we did it! Everyone crossed the finish line incredibly proud of our accomplishment. It was an amazing experience for all involved. 

I am excited to fundraise for Girls on the Run because I've seen it positively impact my students. All donations will be contributing to fund scholarships for girls to run in the 5k race. 

Thank you for your support as I challenge myself like I have challenged my girls!
