Greetings friends! Welcome. If you are on this page, changes are, you are my friend or obligated family member who has decided to join an amazing cause.
Once again, I'm running the Chicago Marathon this fall in support of Girls on the Run. This is my second year in a row fundraising for GOTR and running the Chicago Marathon, and I'd appreciate making this goal more than just a one-hit wonder.
Running has changed who I am on the inside and out, and I'm psyched to be committed to an organization that understands the role that running can play in shaping the future of young girl.s
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.
