It’s been five years since I last ran the Chicago Marathon so I decided to do it again. My eight-year-old niece, Audrey, has been participating in Girls on the Run after school, so this year I decided to do my fundraising for Girls on the Run Chicago. Please consider donating online using this fundraising page. Or you can send in a check, made payable to Girls on the Run-Chicago, with my name in the memo section to 1415 N. Dayton St, Suite 112 Chicago, IL. 60642
Girls on the Run is an afterschool program for girls ages 8-14 that transforms the way girls see themselves and their opportunities. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment, while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. The mission is achieved by volunteer coaches who meet with the girls as a team twice per week for 12 weeks as they complete the curriculum which creatively integrates running, goal-setting and training for a non-competitive 5k (3.1 miles) running event with interactive lessons that encourage positive social-emotional and physical development among participants.
