BENEFITING: GIRLS ON THE RUN NYC
ORGANIZER: GIRLS ON THE RUN NYC
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
This will be my first year running the NYC Marathon, and I can't think of a better way to debut at this race than to raise money for an amazing cause! As anyone who knows me knows, running is my life, and I'm always trying to share the joy of running with as many people as possible. This fall, I'll be sharing it with a group of girls in Manhattan as their Girls on the Run coach. So help me help this organization keep spreading the joy!
GIRLS ON THE RUN NYC wrote -
Meeting twice a week in small teams of 8-20 girls, we teach life skills through fun, engaging lessons and conversation-based running games. The 24-lesson curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork, and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large. Over the course of the program, girls will develop and improve competence, feel confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care and compassion, create positive connections with peers and adults, and make a meaningful a contribution to community and society.

$35 can sponsor a pair of running shoes for one girl.
$150 can fund healthy snacks and a pair of running shoes for 3 girls in the program.
