Thank you for taking the time to consider helping me in supporting a wonderful cause.
According to the Dove Self-Esteem Project, 6 out of 10 girls feel so bad about the way they look, they opt out of important activities. I believe deeply that having to navigate new and unfamiliar environements is one of the most empowering experiences students can have, and GirlVentures programming facilitates this for a population that does not always get that opportunity. As the only San Francisco Bay Area nonprofit of its kind, GirlVentures combines outdoor adventure with social emotional learning for adolescent girls, at a time in their lives when they need support the most. More than 90% of alumna report that the programs empower them to make smart choices for healthy living, relate to others and their environment wisely, and become effective and confident leaders.
As an Ambassador Circle Board Member, along with other members of the GirlVentures community, this year, we will be running the Rock N' Roll Half Marathon in support of GirlVentures. All proceeds that we earn will go to the Girlventures' scholarship fund, ensuring that ALL girls have the opportunity to go on course.
Thank you for your support and consideration in supporting girls!
