Hi! My name is Jenn Savedge. I am the mom of two awesome little girls - ages 8 and 11. And I am also a coach for my local Girls on the Run club.
I'm not kidding when I say that I have watched this program absolutely transform young girls' lives.
If you're not familiar with it, Girls on the Run is an organization that coaches girls in grades 3-5 with the ultimate goal of running a 5K. But GOTR is truly more than a running program. It's a program that teaches girls about health, fitness, self-esteem, community, and real beauty. And it reminds girls how awesome they are before society, their friends, or that little voice in their head starts telling them otherwise.
This fall, I will run the NYC Marathon with the goal of raising money for Girls on the Run along the way.This will be my 8th marathon and I am so happy that my miles in training and on race day will be going toward such a worthwhile cause.
If you are interested in donating to GOTR, I would be most grateful if you would consider donating through my fundraising page:
