Dear Friends and Family, As you know, I serve on the board of directors of GirlVentures (girlventures.org), a Bay Area non-profit whose mission is to inspire girls to lead through outdoor adventure, inner discovery and collective action. GirlVentures unique programming of outdoor activities combined with inner discovery helps girls build the self-esteem and resilience that will empower them to face the challenges of adolescence, as well as make a difference in the world around them.
For this year’s Hike for Girls I’m fundraising in memory of a dear friend, Julie Ousley. Julie loved GirlVentures and for years sponsored a full scholarship to send low income girls on GV courses (two thirds of girls who participate in GV courses receive scholarships). I would really appreciate your support to reach my fundraising goal of $3,000, which covers a full scholarship for a two-week summer course participant. Together we can make a difference in a girl's life. I appreciate your support. Thank you, Kathy
