I am running my 2nd Boston Marathon and I am excited to earn my # raising funds for Girls-Row Boston a rowing program for urban girls!
G-ROW offers after school rowing and academic support to 200 girls in the Boston Public Schools. Since the program's inception nearly 100% of participants have gone on to college.
For those of you who know me well you certainly understand what an important role sports have played in my life. Those skills and lessons have helped me accomplish so many personal and professional goals. I had numerous coaches and mentors along the way who taught me the self confidence needed to succeed in sports, school, and my career. I want to pay it forward and make that possible for girls who may not have those opportunities without an organization like G-ROW.
Please help me in supporting G-ROW and providing young girls the opportunity to learn self confidence, dicipline, commitment and other skills that will help them succeed in life.
