Hi thanks for visiting my fundraising page for Never Give Up Ever!
I'm Emma Brott and I am a 10th grader at Essex High School, I am going to tell you the story of how I be came a runner.
Back when I was a 4th grader, I joined a lovely little program called Girls on the Run! This program has not only taught me to love running, but it inspired me to be the best me that I can be.
Years later, still in love with the program, I could no longer be a participant but my mom, a GOTR coach, suggested that I coach along side her. I loved that I could continue to be a part of the program, and now I could inspire these young beautiful girls to be their true selves and to help them love running!
Girls on the Run has taught me to love running and I love inspiring young girls to love running too!
Now fast forward to this Winter when me and a couple of my friends were talking and we decided that we wanted to run a half marathon...after a couple days of deciding whether we should do it or not... we all signed up! We are running for the Never Give Up Ever Team!
This experience has been hard for me, but I love every minute of it. I have learned from this experience, that running is hard, but when you finish a long hard run, it is one of the best feelings in the entire world!!
The conclusion to this story is, that anyone can be a runner you just have to believe in yourself, try your hardest & Never Give Up Ever!! I have come so far since that first year of Girls on the Run and I am so proud of myself for what I am about to do! Thanks for reading my story & thanks for helping me raise money for Never Give Up Ever!!
