BENEFITING: Girls on the Run - Chicago

EVENT: GOTR CHICAGO MARATHON 2015

EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2015

THE STORY:

Girls on the Run, it is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) life-changing, after-school program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. Simply put, Girls on the Run transforms the way girls see themselves and their opportunities. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment, while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. The mission is achieved by volunteer coaches who meet with the girls as a team twice per week for 12 weeks as they complete the curriculum which creatively integrates running, goal-setting and training for a non-competitive 5k running event with interactive lessons that encourage positive social-emotional and physical development among participants.

Approximately 85% of girls request and receive financial assistance to participate.

Every donation has a huge impact!

$10 will cover the cost of one girl's healthy snacks for a season
$25 will cover the cost of 150 bananas for the 5k finish line
$44 will cover the cost of 50 tiaras for the girls to decorate at the activities tent at the 5k
$152 will cover the cost of one girl to participate in the program for one season
$260 will cover the cost of water bottles for 400 girls
$335 will cover the cost of program t-shirts for 85 girls
$525 will cover the cost of all curriculum materials and supplies for 6 teams
$796 will cover the cost of training 20 new coaches
$988 will cover the cost of finisher medals for 650 girls
$1,500 will cover the cost of healthy snacks for 15 teams of 15 girls
$2,283 will cover the cost to implement the program at one new low-income site

On behalf of more than 1 million girls who have participated in GOTR throughout North America to-date and the 10,000 Girls on the Run-Chicago hopes to serve this year, THANK YOU!
