I just registered for the Free Press International Half Marathon, and this year I would love to try to give back to a community of people who have given me the opportunity to grow and serve my community. I've been involved with Girls on the Run for a year now, and truly believe it is an incredible program. Girls on the Run is a program for young girls to learn the importance of healthy living - not just physically but mentally and emotionally as well. It helps girls learn how to work with others, how to treat themselves and others with respect, and many other important life skills and values.
In addition to providing a financial donation, please also consider donating your time. Girls on the Run has a "brother" program - STRIDE - if you'd prefer to work with boys in a similar capacity. See the links below for more information on the programs and how to get involved! Thank you!!!
