Please donate to Girls on the Run-Austin! This is a great program that helps pre-teen girls get active and respect themselves! See more
Girls on the Run is an after-school program that uses the power of running to help prepare pre-teen girls for a lifetime of self-respect, positive choices, and healthy living. The girls particpate in a 12-week training program that culminates in a 5K. I volunteered coached these girls one semester, and it was so great to see how proud they were of themselves when crossing the finish line! Some of the girls, especially in the area where I coached, could not afford proper shoes or workout clothes, so please donate if you can.
