On October 7thI will be running my first marathon, the Lakefront Marathon- crossing the finish line in Milwaukee after 26.2 miles will feel even better knowing I helped to make a difference in the lives of girls! I will be running with Girls on the Run Solemates, the charity program benefiting Girls on the Run of Charlotte.
I’ve been involved with GOTR since 2013 and have seen first hand the impact it has on girls’ lives. Girls on the Run transforms the way girls see themselves and their opportunities. They do this by teaching girls about healthy decision making and life skills, all while training them to run a 5k. Girls in the program learn about mental, physical, emotional and social health, as well as experience the empowering effects of crossing a finish line!
Over 50% of the girls who participate in the Girls on the Run program receive financial assistance. Girls on the Run Solemates raise critically needed funds to serve more girls in the Charlotte area.
I appreciate your help with this effort. Together, we can create a world of healthy, happy, active girls who believe anything is possible!
