This scholarship was founded in 2014 in honor of Sara Morley, former Girls on the Run of Northern Arizona's Council Director. Sara was the driving force who kept Girls on the Run alive in Northern Arizona by bringing it to North Country HealthCare.
Sara’s deep commitment to public service, belief in the limitless potential of every girl and passionate participation in life helped define her Girls on the Run Spirit. This spirit lives on in all of us, and is memorialized through this scholarship that helps support young woman who participated in Girls on the Run of Northern Arizona as they take the next step in activating their limitless potential—attending an educational program after high school.
In November 2016, two years to the day that we lost Sara, we were the recipients of the funds from the local group Women Empowering Northern Arizona. With these funds, we reached our goal of $25,000 to endow the scholarship in perpetuity. With the support of Sara’s mom and sisters, we now have set a goal to raise another $25,000 providing for an additional $1,000 scholarship.
Thank you in advance for your donations in honor of Sara Morley!
