Your fundraising dollar provides a chance for every girl in Davidson and Williamson County to have the opportunity to be a Girl on the Run, regardless of background or income. These funds will allow Girls on the Run Nashville to provide scholarships, volunteer support, resources and training. $200 will support a girl for an entire season of Girls on the Run and no girl is ever turned away because of the inability to pay. My journey as a runner all began because of this wonderful organization. If it could show a 34 year old woman who never ran a day in her life what running can do for your soul and self esteem, imagine what it does for all of the young girls out there in their amazing programs? Love, Love, Love the positive message that GOTR brings to girls ( of any age :) ) all over.
On October 20, 2013, I will be running in my second full marathon. 26.2 miles! I made a promise to myself that I would always run my marathons in honor of GOTR to thank them for what they did for me. There is something about running for more than just yourself that makes the goal that much more special. Each step will be taken knowing that I am running for an amazing cause. Please show your support, no matter the amount as I fundraise for this amazing organization. Thank you so much for your time and support.
