Welcome to my fundraising page for the 50th Annual TCS NYC Marathon! Dinée Dorame yinishyé. Tábąąhá (Water's Edge clan) nishłį́, Naakai dine’é (Mexican People clan) bashishchiin. Tótsohníí (Big Water clan) dashicheii, Naakai dine’é dashinalí. My name is Dinée Dorame and I'm a citizen of the Navajo Nation. I am Water's Edge Clan, Born for the Mexican People clan. My maternal grandfather is Big Water clan and my paternal grandfather is Mexican People clan.
I am so excited to be raising charity funds for Girls Inc. of New York City by running the 50th Annual TCS NYC Marathon! Their mission is to help girls develop the capacity to achieve academically, lead healthy and physically active lives, manage peer pressure, navigate media messages, make sound financial decisions, and discover or expand their interest in the STEM fields.
I ask that you consider making a donation today in support of their organization! All proceeds will support the Sporting Chance Program where girls develop a life-long love of sports. If you are unable to donate but would still like to help, please feel free to share my page and spread the word! :)
In Diné culture, running is important in honoring and connecting with the land/earth, and keeping your mind, body and spirit healthy. I have grown up in a household full of runners who upheld this concept and my parents always emphasized the importance of exercise and spending time outdoors. I hope to inspire other young women to chase their dreams, stay mentally and physically active, and #RunHappy!
Cheers to 26.2 miles for #TeamStrongSmartBold!
About Girls Inc. of NYC
Our mission is to help girls develop the capacity to achieve academically, lead healthy and physically active lives, manage peer pressure, navigate media messages, make sound financial decisions, and discover or expand their interest in the STEM/STEAM fields.
Annually, over 8,500 girls attend our life-transforming programs and experiences, which are delivered by trained professionals in a positive all-girl environment.
We partner with schools and community-based organizations in New York City’s most under-served communities including the South Bronx, East Harlem, Brooklyn, Astoria, and Staten Island. Trained staff and volunteers build mentoring relationships in girls-only spaces where girls find a sisterhood of support with mutual respect and high expectations. Research-based programs provide girls with the skills and knowledge to overcome obstacles and improve academic performance.
All proceeds will support the Sporting Chance Program where girls develop a life-long love of sports.
