So, for not being a runner I have signed up for yet another race!! However, this time instead of doing it just for myself, I found a charity that I absolutely fell in love with! I will be running Disney’s Marathon Weekend in 2021 as a SoleMate for Girls on the Run®!!
For those that know me, if asked to describe me, they would probably use the word “confident.” I am true to myself and do my best to encourage those around me to do the same! This outlook brought me to become a SoleMate and provide scholarships for young women to participate in a life-changing program.
As a non-profit youth development program, Girls on the Run uses engaging lessons and running activities to positively change the way girls see themselves and their opportunities. As these girls learn skills to navigate their lives with confidence, they also get to train for their first big race! They learn about setting goals, overcoming difficult obstacles, as well as achievement. Most importantly, they cross a finish line that changes their outlook on life.
