BENEFITING: SHE'S THE FIRST

ORGANIZER: SHE'S THE FIRST

Cierra Kaler-Jones

THE STORY:

Welcome to my fundraising page! 

Four years ago, my life was forever changed when I learned about She's the First's mission to sponsor girls' education in economically-disadvantaged countries so that they could be the first in their families to graduate secondary school. There was something so powerful that drew me in, knowing that I could have a connection with a girl across the world, simply because we were the first in our families to achieve an educational goal. 

Now, She's the First has not only allowed me to fundraise and make a direct impact, but has taught and exposed me to global issues of the disparities in universal education, and helped me to forge close friendships across the country with others who are just as passionate as I am. She's the First taught me what it means to be a dedicated leader, inspiring me through my time with them as a intern, Founding chapter President, Alumni Association Communications Chair, and now, She's the First*{GW} organization advisor. 

It's been on my bucket list for awhile to run a half marathon, so I figured I would start at a 10k and eventually work my way up. On May 15th, 2016, just two weeks before my 23rd birthday, I will be running the Capitol Hill Classic 10k, in honor of She's the First. I hope that you'll help me achieve my birthday wish of raising enough money to sponsor a girls' education!

Always, 

CKJ

 

 

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.
