BENEFITING: Girls on the Run - Chicago
ORGANIZER: Girls on the Run - Chicago
EVENT: GOTR Chicago Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
Checking running the Chicago Marathon off my bucket list this year! Finally signed up for the 26.2 miles, there in no turning back now.
Last fall, I was feeling the need to give back to the community when I found out about GOTR. I became an asst. coach to 8 wonderful girls who changed my life forever. I am so blessed to be part of this organization and watch these girls gain the confidence to be anything that they choose to be. To watch them come out of their shell in only a short 10 weeks is AWESOME. At the end of the 10 weeks we have a huge 5k with all of the GOTR in the area, it is such a great experience for all the girls. I am again a coach this spring and now I have 16 girls that I am coaching.
Just as we teach the girls - They can raise up to any challenge! It is my turn to raise up to the challenge to raise $1000 for this organization and to run 26.2 miles for each of these girls!
