I'm proud to be running Boston's Run to Remember for Title IX Girls Running Club! Title IX Girls is a community based, tax exempt, educational running club for preteen and adolescent girls. The principal program, the Whole Girl Workout, uses the principles of running to strengthen the connections among the emotional, psychological and physical health in girls ages 9 to 15. The program was created to bridge the divide between a traditional recreational sporting environment and an educational experience of a clinical setting. It’s a comprehensive approach to educating the whole girl in mind, body and spirit and uses running as the instrument in which to connect the three.
Your gift will directly affect the organization’s ability to help girls meet challenges like: Taking a chance in class by shooting her hand in the air even if she's not 100% sure of the answer. Speaking up for herself or others instead of remaining silent. Asking for help instead of isolating herself. Trusting her intuition and walking away from a situation that doesn't feel quite right for her. Thank you for supporting my run and for supporting the health and well-being of girls in Cambridge and the Greater Boston area.
