Hi Friends, Maia is training for her first 5K as part of a program called Girls on the Run! All funds support an inspiring program that brings girls together at various CPS schools in Chicago, with the intent of training them to believe to achieve. Girls learn to respect themselves (e.g., choosing to be truthful, choosing to help create a safe environment where all girls can be themselves), as well as respect others (e.g., choosing to find the positive in myself an others, choosing to celebrate what makes me unique, choosing to be accountable to myself and others). Many of you have followed our journey and so know how much inner strength Maia has developed at a very early age. We are fortunate to have found a place where she can thrive and this program offered through our neighborhood school fits her like a glove. Please consider supporting her in achieving this goal - Go Maia Go!
