BENEFITING: GIRLS ON THE RUN OF NOVA
I'm committed to training for the Girls on the Run 5k this May and to fundraising enough to cover the cost of a full season scholarship for one girl in need! As a former Coach, I've seen first hand how Girls on the Run of NOVA serves girls in 3rd – 8th grade throughout Northern Virginia, helping each participant gains the skills she needs to be strong, confident, and healthy. Physical activity, specifically running, is woven into the GOTR program to help build habits that lead to a lifetime of health. Running is also a tangible way to show girls the value of commitment and goal setting. At the end of each season, girls participate in the GOTR 5k -- a celebratory, non-competitive event and the culminating experience of the curriculum. Completing the 5k gives each girl an understanding of the confidence that comes from accomplishment as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals, large and small.
