BENEFITING: Girls on the Run - Chicago
ORGANIZER: Girls on the Run - Chicago
EVENT: 2017 GOTR Chicago Marathon
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2017
I'm returning to the Chicago Marathon for 2017 and I'm thrilled to run as part of the Girls on the Run Solemates team! This is my 4th year fundraising for this organization (2nd marathon)
My fundrasing goal is $4,239.00 for Girls on the Run - enough to send 27 girls through the program. That's 1 girl for each mile.
The cost for 1 girl to participate in the program is $157.
This year I'm setting a goal that's exciting and really intimidating. Given the earlier registration timeline and my passion for this organization, I believe this goal is entirely possible.
Thank you so much for your support of this race and this charity.
Girls on the Run - Chicago wrote -
Girls on the Run is an afterschool program for girls ages 8-14 that uses the power of running to inspire girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. The program combines training for a non-competitive 5k running event with interactive lessons that encourage positive social-emotional and physical development among participants. More than 85% of girls taking part in the program receive some sort of financial assistance to participate. All funds raised by the Girls on the Run SoleMates Team go to underwrite program scholarships so that any girl can participate in this life-changing programing, regardless of her family's ability to pay the program fee.
