THE STORY:

Welcome to my GOTR Fundraiser Page!

This is my second year attempting to run Chicago Marathon in October and second time raising money for Girls On The Run. I am very excited and honored to be doing this again, for a charity I fully believe is making so many positive changes in young girl's lives. Thank you to those who contributed to my fundraiser last year, thanks to you we have raised $1,445 way more than my initial goal. Wow, you are all so AMAZING. I believe we can do this again this year! (or even better). Thank you to those who came out last year to cheer me on during the race, it was an incredible experience and I just cannot wait to do it again and crush my personal record. 

Thank you again for all the support! All donations are tax deductible. If you are not familiar with GOTR, PLEASE read bleow more about this charity and where all the funding is going.

With LOVE...

Marlena Begier

Here's more about GIRLS ON THE RUN:

Girls on the Run, it is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) life-changing, after-school program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. Simply put, Girls on the Run 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 running event with interactive lessons that encourage positive social-emotional and physical development among participants.

Approximately 85% of girls request and receive financial assistance to participate.

Every donation has a huge impact!

$10 will cover the cost of one girl's healthy snacks for a season
$25 will cover the cost of 150 bananas for the 5k finish line
$44 will cover the cost of 50 tiaras for the girls to decorate at the activities tent at the 5k
$152 will cover the cost of one girl to participate in the program for one season
$260 will cover the cost of water bottles for 400 girls
$335 will cover the cost of program t-shirts for 85 girls
$525 will cover the cost of all curriculum materials and supplies for 6 teams
$796 will cover the cost of training 20 new coaches
$988 will cover the cost of finisher medals for 650 girls
$1,500 will cover the cost of healthy snacks for 15 teams of 15 girls
$2,283 will cover the cost to implement the program at one new low-income site

On behalf of more than 1 million girls who have participated in GOTR throughout North America to-date and the 10,000 Girls on the Run-Chicago hopes to serve this year, THANK YOU!
