BENEFITING: SHE'S THE FIRST

ORGANIZER: SHE'S THE FIRST

Brittany Remington

THE STORY:

Hi All,

My boyfriend, Alex, and I are going to be raising money for She's the First through 2 major runs (other smaller 5k's to come later):

  • The Long Island 10k (Long Island Half for him)
  • The Brooklyn Half Marathon

The Brooklyn Half Marathon will actually be the first time I have ever signed up for a half marathon. While I am not an avid runner, it is something I have always wanted to do and I have even more encouragement knowing that you will help support She's the First while I make my way towards the finish line!

SHE'S THE FIRST wrote -

Sweat for STF is a community of people who use fitness as a means of fundraising for She's the First scholarships, helping girls in low-income countries to 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!  

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. 

Annually, the grand finale of the campaign is the New York City Marathon, where since 2012 we've had first-time marathoners run for us—it coincides with a celebration of She's the First's birthday.

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.
