The average American girl's self-esteem peaks at age nine… and then plummets. Diminishing confidence makes every hurdle – in friendships, school, and home life – more difficult.
But each year, Girls on the Run of NOVA teaches 5,000 girls in 3rd - 8th grade that they are strong, healthy, and ready for any challenge. Girls on the Run offers a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Over the course of a 10 week season, girls realize their unique potential, tap into their individual strengths, and unleash their confidence.
I'm raising $200 to cover the cost of a full season scholarship for a girl in need as well as my bib for the Girls on the Run 5k. I will be completing the end of season 5k with 2,500+ local girls and their family and friends. This event is the culmination of a season of programming and curriculum designed to inspire healthy habits and choices for a lifetime of well-being.
Give today to ensure more girls can gain the skills they need to be strong, confident, healthy women!!
