BENEFITING: Girls on the Run - Chicago
ORGANIZER: Girls on the Run - Chicago
EVENT: GOTR Chicago Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
Hey everyone! I'm going to be running the Chicago Get Lucky half-marathon this year on Saturday March 11th! I'm excited to train for another half, which is how I fell in love with running my senior year of college.
I'm raising money for one of my favorite charities, Girls On the Run, which empowers underprivileged girls ages 8-13 right here in Chicago to set and achieve goals through training for a noncompetitive 5k. I fundraised for them in 2015 for my first marathon, and was deeply impacted by the experience of meeting one of the mothers of a first year GotR participant- her daughter received a scholarship that is provided by me and others who raise money for them.
Please join me in making a difference in a girl's life and donate! The more funds we raise, the more girls we impact.
