I am running the 124th Boston Marathon for Title IX Girls Running Club and I couldn't be more excited! I have been volunteering with this organization over the past year as a member of their Community Engagement Team and I have had such a positive experience. Most importantly, I believe in their mission. I have seen the impact the program has had on girls. Title IX Girls focuses on using the principles of running to help strengthen girls in all aspects of their life. I first hand have experienced this with running. Marathon training and racing has probably had the biggest impact on my life. After completing my first Boston Marathon in 2017 I had 26.2 tattood on my hip to constantly remind me that it's all about the long game, life's a marathon and if you can push through 26.2 up the hills of Newton and cross the finish line you can cross any finish line in life. I'm SO EXCITED to see what this year's Boston Marathon will have in store for me, and I'm even more excited to raise funds to enhance the important work Title IX Girls Running Club is doing in the Boston community. Let's go girls!!
Title IX Girls Running Club is a community based, tax exempt, educational running club for preteen and adolescent girls. The running club uses the principles of running to strengthen the connections among emotional, psychological and physical health in girls ages 9 to 15.
WHY GIRLS…We think of the whole girl as a multi faceted social, emotional, and physical being who deserves activities that recognize her developmental stage. Our principal program the Whole Girl Workout was created to bridge the divide between a traditional recreational sporting environment and an educational experience of a clinical setting. This unique and comprehensive approach to educating the whole girl in mind, body and spirit uses running as the instrument in which to connect the three.
