My name is Norelia Caldera and I have been involved with Girls on the Run this last year. I have decided to train and run my first full marathon in honor of my 40th birthday and I will be running the California International Marathon in December. Aside from reaching my new goal to run a marathon, I want to further use this endeavor to run as a SoleMate to benefit Girls on the Run Butte County. Having been involved with Girls on the Run this last year has allowed to me to see how important and beneficial this program is for EVERY girl. Please help me in reaching my goal to raise money for this organization that benefits so many girls in our community. Every girl deserves an opportunity to learn and use their optimal potential, feel and be confident with who they are, and to reach any dream they set their minds to.
