Gluttons for punishment, Austin and I just signed up for our 2nd half marathon - the San Jose Rock n' Roll Half Marathon - to support and run for GirlVentures, a non-profit organization whose mission is to empower adolescent girls to develop and express their strengths.
This organization runs summer expeditions with a social-emotional learning curriculum based in social justice, identity, and confidence building. While kayaking, backpacking, and rock climbing in the California wilderness, girls learn about themselves and how they relate to others.
Last year, you helped blow our goal of $1,300 out of the water by donating a total of $2,695! This year, Austin and I are hoping that you will be able to help us reach or EXCEED our fundraising goal of simply $1,000.
By raising this money, we are adding to Girlventures' scholarship fund, ensuring that ALL girls have the opportunity to participate in the programs offered by GirlVentures.
I've served on the GirlVentures' Ambassador Circle for over two years now, and it has been a wonderful experience to help make differences in girls' lives.
So, please help A&M support GirlVentures by making a donation of any amount. The process is fast, easy, and secure.If you can't make a donation at this time, help us reach our goal by sharing this page on your Facebook and Twitter!
Thanks so much for your generosity!
