THE STORY:

Hello Friends!

My sister (Aunt V, Bun, Valari) and I are participating in the Oakland Running Festival this year, to raise money for Girls Inc. of Alameda County. Our goal is to raise at least $100 each, covering the expenses for our own participation and the participation of girls in the program. And, this is a first for us both. We'll be wearing those runner bibs and everything!

What is Girls Inc., you ask? It's a non-profit based in Oakland, CA, that inspires girls to be strong, smart, and bold through a comprehensive range of services - helping girls K-12 build literacy, develop interest in STEM, cultivate self-confidence and leadership skills, access counseling services, navigate college applications and much more.

Fast facts:

+ More than 8,000 individuals served annually

+ 92% live in low-income households and qualify for the free or reduced price meals program

+ 96% of girls served identify as girls of color

+ Girls Inc. seniors are twice as likely to apply, be admitted to and enroll in a 4-year college than their peers

+ Girls Inc. 3rd graders are three times as likely to be reading at grade level than their peers
