BENEFITING: GIRLS ON THE RUN OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY
EVENT DATE: Aug 19, 2016
As some of you may know I am running my 2nd half marathon on August 21st. This year I am not only running this race for me but for an awesome organization called Girls on the Run. The mission of Girls on the Run is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident through experiences involving running. This past March, I was selected to join Friends on the Run - group of dynamic women who support GOTR through community outreach around girls/women's issues and fundraising. This past spring season I was also able to witness first hand the joy that comes from a girl accomplishing her dreams at the season finale 5k. I only started running about 3 years ago and it has given me the opportunity to improve my mental and physical health. I want nothing more than for young girls to be able to feel like they matter and are more than capable to accomplish anything they put their mind to. You can find out more about GOTR at www.gotrla.org. Each season GOTR engages over 200 girls and provides scholarships to girls that can not pay for the program. Over 70% of the girls receive some type of financial assistance. My goal is to raise $200 to help girls participate in the fall program. This will also be a little competition. With your donation you are able to guess what time you think I will finish the race. Any donation over $15 is eligible to win a prize of GOTR merch. I will be running the America's Finest Half Marathon in San Diego and there is a course limit of 3 hours. In the comments section of your donation include the time. Use the format HH:MM:SS. All money raised through this platform will go directly to GOTR. You can make your donation now until August 19th on this site
