Girls on the Run is an organization that is very near and dear to me. I was a coach for 10 seasons and saw hundreds of my students grow through the combination of the social emotional curriculum, message of self-empowerment, and physical fitness. Every season culminates in a 5k where the girls run with a "Buddy Runner". Nearly, 100% of my former students received financial support to participate in Girls on the Run and complete their 5k race.
Race registration can be a difficult cost for some families. As a member of the GOTRC Associate Board, I want to be sure every girl has a running buddy and we are “in her corner.” Having a supportive adult cheering on can create enormous impact for any child.
Your contribution can help a Girl on the Run complete their 5k with their Buddy Runner without adding undue financial stress on the families. Any contribution is GREATLY appreciated!
