Hi! I’m Brittany, and thanks for taking the time to visit my fundraising page! I am beyond thrilled and honored to run for the Girl Scouts of Eastern MA in the 2018 Boston Marathon!
Starting as a Daisy in Kindergarten through to my Senior year in high school as a Cadet, the Girl Scouts of Eastern MA was an organization that was formative to my development. Not only did I learn how to be a strong leader and build character and self-confidence, but I learned how to accomplish my goals whatever they might be. Through Pancake breakfasts, Memorial Day Ceremonies, and Camp-Outs, Girl Scouts taught me about community and contributing to the greater good of my town and the world. It is so exciting that GSEMA supports healthy living and is teaching girls how to live an active lifestyle!
I began running seriously in college as a way to de-stress and feel the power of my body. Last New Year’s Eve, I made the resolution to run a half marathon…and little did I know in 2017 I would run TWO Half Marathons, AND begin my journey for the 2018 Boston Marathon. Each race I feel stronger and I realize that I am more capable than I ever thought possible.
More than anything, It is important to empower girls and young women. They are strong, capable, and they can do anything that they set their mind to! Please support me in reaching my fundraising goal and to help me run like a Girl Scout in order to give back this incredible organization that shaped me!
