EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
Hi! - Lisa here. If you knew me as a child, you know that although I've always been an athlete, I haven't always been a runner. Not until I was into my 30's did I start running, and it has impacted my life in so many positive ways. It has become something that gives me such joy, stress relief, and social-connectedness to community of like-minded friends...to name a few. Last year I was introduced to Girls on the Run, and it immediately grabbed me. Building up girls 3rd-8th grade in incredible ways - emotionally, socially, and physically.
I'm running the Chicago Marathon on October 9, 2016, to raise money and awareness for Girls on the Run. Please support and help me reach my goal of $1,000!! 80% of the funds go to the local chapter here in Colorado, and the other 20% go to the Chicago chapter. THANK YOU!!!
Girls on the Run® is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness
