Girls on the Run Superhero 5k Campaign
Creating a personalized fundraising page allows you to invite your friends and family to make a donation to your page in support of your participation in the Superhero 5K on Sunday, October 22nd in Dexter. Participants who raise or donate $160 or more will receive an exclusive, locally made Superhero cape to wear at the event.
By taking just a few seconds to create a fundraising page and asking friends and family to donate in support of your endeavor, you will enable Girls on the Run to empower and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness and build confidence through accomplishment.
Our dream is to make our program available to every girl in southeastern Michigan regardless of her family’s ability to pay our registration fee. Almost ninety percent of our program sites are hosted at title one schools that serve under-resourced, low-income communities. In 2008 less than 50 families requested financial assistance. Last year we provided scholarships to 790 girls. That is quite a leap, however we are extremely proud that since being founded in 2002 we have never turned a family away.
Will you help us inspire even more girls in our community to make positive choices, avoid negative behaviors and create generations of healthy, confident female leaders?
Thank you for making a difference!
