EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
We are excited to run the 2016 Chicago Marathon in support of Girls on the Run!
Kelly is a proud Associate Board member of Girls on the Run Chicago, and love supporting the work of an organization that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
Meeting twice a week in small teams of 8-20 girls, we teach life skills through fun, engaging lessons that celebrate the joy of movement. The 20-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.
At each season's conclusion, the girls and their running buddies complete a 5k running event. Completing a 5k gives the girls a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. The results are the same—making the seemingly impossible, possible.
Simple, engaging and extraordinary. The result? Healthy, confident girls who can.
