BENEFITING: GIRLS ON THE RUN NYC
ORGANIZER: GIRLS ON THE RUN NYC
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2016
Girls on the Run NYC leads after-school programs for girls in 3rd through 8th grade that empower them by teaching life skills and creatively using running games.
The work of Girls on the Run is deeply personal to me. I spent 2 years teaching English to students in rural Thailand of that same age and saw firsthand how they needed not only language but also life skills . During that same time, I also dispelled an assumption that I had held for 22 years: that there was no way that I could be a runner. The fact that the closet gym was a two hour bus ride away was also a good motivator.
After almost 4 years in New York, I am excited to do something that will leave a positive impact on a city that has done so much for me!
Join me in raising $1500 before March 20th to catalyze the empowerment of girls in New York City.
