As a Coach of GIRLS ON THE RUN of LOS ANGELES COUNTY I've decided to train for and run the 2012 LA Marathon! I'm fundraising and supporting their cause so that they can bring this program to as many as girls as possible.
Through a deep commitment to social justice, GOTRLA offers supportive role models, positive lessons and physical activity at a critical time when girls often face negative pressures of how to behave, look and think. It is much more than a running program; GOTRLA is nutrition for the body, mind and soul, and works to instill a sense of confidence in girls that will take them into adolescence and beyond, ready to take on the world.
I would not be running this race if I weren't running for GOTRLA. I'd love your support in supporting this organization!
GIRLS ON THE RUN OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY wrote -
Girls on the Run of Los Angeles County (GOTRLA) is dedicated to educating and preparing girls in 3rd through 8th grades for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. Using an interactive curriculum, certified volunteer coaches facilitate the twice-weekly afterschool sessions that combine the power of physical activity with important lessons to strengthen girls’ physical, social and emotional development.
The 12-week season culminates in a non-competitive 5k run/walk in the Pasadena Marathon in May. Seeing them cross the finish line is empowerment in action – they prove to themselves that they can do anything!
