I am fundraising for Girls on the Run of the Bay Area - an awesome non-profit organization!
Girls on the Run of the Bay Area provides 3rd-5th girls in the Bay Area with a physical and emotional health curriculum that creatively integrates running twice a week. I am volunteering as a co-coach at Cleveland Elementary School in the Excelsior District of San Francisco this fall. Every lesson in the curriculum focuses on a different aspect of physical and emotional health such as nutrition, body image, relationships, or peer pressure. I have had a fun and meaningful experience with my Cleveland girls and co-coaches. The fall program will culminate with a 5K in Golden Gate Park on December 1st.
I started volunteering with Girls on the Run because teaching kids and running are two passions of mine. Long distance running is my "yoga". I have completed 2 half marathons and am looking forward to fundraising for Girls on the Run while training for the Kaiser Permanente Half Marathon on February 3rd.
Any donation will help and is much appreciated!
