BENEFITING: Girls on the Run South Louisiana
EVENT: The Louisiana Marathon 2012
EVENT DATE: Jan 15, 2012
Join our Girls on the Run fundraising team and help us grow a community of healthy, confident girls who 'CAN'!
Our event: The Louisiana Marathon full, half, relay or 5k
Our Goal: $5000
What We Do:
We INSPIRE girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
Certified volunteer coaches facilitate the twice-weekly after school sessions that combine the power of physical activity with important lessons to strengthen girls’ inside and out!
At Girls on the Run, running is not just a metaphor. We use this activity to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. At each season's conclusion, the girls and their running buddies, participate in the New Balance Girls on the Run 5k. This inspirig event is not only a celebration of physical health, but also the girl's journey toward a life of positive emotional, social and mental well-being..
You should know...we provide programming each fall and spring for 300 girls in 16 schools within our community. Programs are expected to increase 25% each year. This year, more than $45,000 in scholarship funding was awarded to girls who otherwise would not have the opportunity to participate.
You can help us expand to reach more girls! Join our 2011 Louisiana Marathon team to raise funds and help us inspire girls to celebrate their bodies, honor their voices, recognize their gifts, and activate their power!
