BENEFITING: GIRLS ON THE RUN WILLAMETTE VALLEY
ORGANIZER: GIRLS ON THE RUN WILLAMETTE VALLEY
EVENT: Eugene Marathon 2016
Girls on the Run is so much fun! My volunteer work for this non-profit that empowers 3-5 grade girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident is one of the most valuable ways I spend my time. This spring, I will support new coaches and help ensure that their teams are successful and sustainable. Our local program has grown so much in the past 4 years, and this spring we are excited to have teams at 11 schools in the Eugene/ Springfield area!
You can help by donating to my SoleMates campaign. Funds raised by SoleMates go directly to the Girls on the Run scholarship program, which assists families in financial need. A super-amazing aspect of Girls on the Run is that we never turn away a girl for inability to pay the participant fee. Thank you for supporting me in my personal running races (next up is an 18- miler on the McKenzie River Trail in April), my work with Girls on the Run, and for helping young girls to be strong and confident!
