BENEFITING: SHE'S THE FIRST

ORGANIZER: SHE'S THE FIRST

Anessa Amin

THE STORY:

Hi friends and family!

On November 19th, I will be participating in the Philadelphia Half-Marathon on behalf of She's the First. The organization provides scholarships for girls located in impoverished countries, helping them graduate from high school. They also provide young women with medical care, supplies, and food, as well as pairing them with mentors for ongoing support and guidance.

In today's world, education is an extremely important resource that opens up many doors for a better life. Unfortunately, many children, especially girls, are unable to access quality education, which limits their prospects for the future. Being a student at the University of Pennsylvania, I've had an incredible opportunity to receive a world-class education and learn so many new skills. After my time here, I believe that all women across the world should have this same experience, no matter what their background. With your help, we can make this a reality. 

Please consider supporting this amazing cause and help young women break the boundaries that have been preventing them from accessing education. Together, we can provide for a new future for girls across the world and empower women everywhere. 

To get more information about She's the First, feel free to visit their website here, and read the blurb written below!

SHE'S THE FIRST wrote -

Sweat for STF is a community of people who use fitness to fundraise for She's the First scholarships, helping girls in low-income countries be the first in their families to graduate from high school.

100% of the net proceeds you raise for She's the First through Sweat for STF go directly to the Scholars at our partner schools. Learn more about giving levels and our country partners at shesthefirst.org.

Participants in past Sweat for STF fundraisers attest that there is nothing more motivating than our Scholars to inspire them to reach their fitness goals!  

The annual grand finale of the campaign is the New York City Marathon, where first-time marathoners run for us—it coincides with a celebration of She's the First's birthday.

Additionally, our Scholars have played a special role in fostering this community. In Nepal at the Kopila Valley School, STF Scholars host a 5k "Race for Equality" that sparks awareness and conversations about gender inequality in their village. 

We hope that you'll join our team, whether you're challenging yourself to run your first half-marathon or marathon, organizing a benefit class with your favorite fitness instructor, or collecting pledges from colleagues who want to see you do 50 squats a day at your desk. Be creative! You're stronger than you think.
