"We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams."
If you know me well, you would know that I hold the above statement very close to my heart, as I have often been an advocate of following your dreams and living life to your full potential. This year, I have my heart set on competing in the ING NYC Marathon. To do so, I have to raise money for a charity and wanted to choose a charity that I hold close to my heart and that I believe in. The above statement is the vision statement of the chosen charity, Girls on the Run.
Girls on the Run is a non-profit organization that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident--through running. It is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade, and the goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. We believe that every girl can embrace who she is, can define who she wants to be, can rise to any challenge, can change the world.
I am so excited to compete in the ING NYC Marathon this November as part of the Girls on the Run NYC SoleMates team. Many thanks for your consideration and donations! See you at the finish line on November 3rd.
