Marine Corps Marathon Washington DC | Oct 28th 2018
In 2018 I'm taking on a big goal: running my first marathon. I'll be fundraising for Girls on the Run-Chicago & DC to ensure more girls have access to programs that push them toward their potential.
I believe every girl...
– has the right to (safe) play;
– should have a supportive community cheering them on;
– can achieve more than she ever believed.
Your donation will provide financial support to under-resourced Girls on the Run programs in Chicago and DC, ensuring that every girl can participate regardless of her financial background. Girls on the Run is a non-profit after-school program with a mission to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident. The innovative program combines training for a non-competitive 5k (3.1 miles) running event with life skills lessons that build positive physical and social-emotional health in participants. GOTR–Chicago has made a commitment to ensure that at least 50% of our programs are located in the city's most under-resourced, low-income communities.
$160 provides a full program scholarship to 1 girl for 10 weeks (including 20 ninety minute practices, trained coaches, healthy snacks, gear, and 5k race day).
