GOTR inspires girls to live joyful, healthy, & confident lives. Your donation empowers these girls to achieve their goals.
I lived in the Brookland neighborhood for 4 years as a student at Catholic University. Most of my time was spent within the gates of campus, but I got to know the community by running the streets of Brookland. Running not only cleared by head and provided an escape from the library or Leahy, but it taught me how to set and meet goals. It empowered me to overcome obstacles and take responsibility for my health and my choices. It also gave me an opportunity to interact with the community around me - I'll never forget the faces that smiled as I ran by, and even sometimes cheered me on.
I want to provide that same encouragement and opportunity to the girls in Brookland. This semester, the Girls on the Run Team in Brookland is training for a 5k race while learning how to overcome obstacles, build character, achieve goals, serve others, and make healthy choices. Girls on the Run educates and prepares girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. Your generosity can change the lives of the girls in Brookland by providing them the opportunity to participate and benefit from the Girls on the Run program.
