Girls on the Run at Lakeshore Family YMCA

THE STORY:

Of all the wonderful programs and services the Y offers our communities, few offer the immense health and social benefits that come with Girls on the Run. Thousands of girls in the Metro Detroit area have learned valuable life lessons through the program's dynamic, conversation-based lessons and running games while preparing physically and emotionally to complete a celebratory 5k running event.

Although many have had life-changing experiences through this program, there are still tens of thousands of girls that have not had the opportunity to participate. While this may be just a lack of accessibility for some, many families simply cannot afford the program. More often than not, girls that are in financially challenged communities are the ones that need the positive and uplifting message of Girls on the Run the most. This is where I need YOUR help.

I am asking you to join me today by making a donation to the the Y and Girls on the Run. Your financial commitment can help us bring Girls on the Run to every girl in Metro Detroit. Although all donations are appreciated, please note our suggested levels of giving:

  • 1 mile Fun Run: $25 - get one girl started in the program
  • 5k Level: $50 – sponsor one girl’s gear
  • 10k Level: $110 – sponsor one girl’s program fees
  • ½ Marathon Level: $160 – total sponsor for one girl (including gear & fees)
  • Marathon Level: $1,920 – sponsor a full team of girls!

Whether you consider me a friend, someone you used to know, a drinking buddy, a former classmate, a part of your family, or someone you've never met - I ask you to open up your generosity and join our cause today. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to e-mail me at jkovalcheck@gmail.com or jkovalcheck@ymcadetroit.org.

I thank you for your involvement!
