BENEFITING: Girls on the Run - Chicago
ORGANIZER: Girls on the Run - Chicago
EVENT: GOTR Chicago Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
This year, I will be running in my first ever marathon. I ran cross country at Brighton High School freshman through junior year. However, senior year, I was introduced to the Girls on the Run program and decided to serve as a coach for them. Now that I am a senior at the University of Notre Dame, I decided to give back in this way!
While training for the 2016 Chicago Marathon, I will be raising money for the Southeast Michigan Council of Girls on the Run, the exact council that I coached for.
Girls on the Run is a non-profit that sets up after-school running programs for young girls. These programs are designed to help girls stay active, but also encourage positive lessons on social, emotional, and physical health and development. It's an incredible program that is empowering young girls to be themselves and have fun too! Please consider donating to this amazing cause. Any and all donations are welcome and I am completely grateful for everyone's support! Thank you!
