I am excited to be running this year's Rock N' Roll Marathon in support of GirlVentures! Proceeds go to Girlventures' scholarship fund, ensuring that ALL girls have the opportunity to go on course. GirlVentures' mission is to empower adolescent girls to develop and express their strengths. Girlventures run 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.
