BENEFITING: GIRLS ON THE RUN OF PUGET SOUND
ORGANIZER: GIRLS ON THE RUN OF PUGET SOUND
HOURS PLEDGED: 25
I am raising money to support Girls on the Run of Puget Sound (http://girlsrun.com).
This amazing organization helps support girls in upper elementary school make healthy choices about friends, school, self-esteem, nutrition, and physical fitness.
Last season I had the joy of being able to see the change this program makes not only as a coach, but at a teacher. I watched shy girls come out of their shells, bullies change their behavior, and a student who struggles academically discover the joy of excelling. This is an amazing program that I am looking to support in any way I can.
As many of you know, I ran my first half marathon in July, and will run the Seattle half in November. I have chosen the charity group SoleMates to help support me in meeting my goal of running all 13.1 miles in 2:45:00.
So please, support this wonderful organization and me by donating to my 600 dollar goal… any amount will bring me closer!
