On Saturday, September 26, 2015, I will be lacing up my running shoes to conquer the Whistlestop Half Marathon in Irondale, AL as a SoleMate for Girls on the Run Birmingham. This will be my first half-marathon in nearly two years!
My fundraising goal for this event is $447. Why $447? Because Girls on the Run Birmingham served 447 girls last school year.
Where will you donation go?
$25 provides a pair of running shoes for a girl who needs them (and about half of our girls need them every semester)
$50 provides one girl her shoes, her program shirts and her 5k finisher's medal
$100 provides all of the supplies that our volunteer coaches need for the semester
$160 provides a full program scholarship for one lucky girl
$250 provides healthy snacks for one team of girls for the semester
Girls on the Run is about so much more than just running. Girls on the Run needs to be in every elementary and intermediate school in the Birmingham area, but we can't get there without your support! Thank you!
