I'm running in the 117th Annual Boston Marathon to support the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts!
Well I am finally doing it, I am lacing up my sneakers on April 15th and running the Boston Marathon for the Girls Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts. All the funds I raise will go to the “Girl Scouts Get Moving Health Initiative” that educates girls on how to stay healthy and keep moving.
This fall my little Girl Scout came to me and said "Mom, they need runners you can run for the Girls Scouts", how could I say no to Hannah, this is for her!! Girls Scouts is the one activity she has stuck with consistently. The joy it brings to her by being part of a group warms my heart .(Plus she loves selling the cookies!) Today kids struggle with so much, a healthy lifestyle can not only bring the physical benefits but also the emotional wellbeing a child needs to keep going.
The Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts is committed to offering health and wellness programs through the “Girl Scouts Get Moving Health Initiative” that educates girls on how to stay healthy and keep moving. Every year, they proudly offer quality indoor and outdoor programming to girls at our 14 camp properties and through our year-round program offerings. These programs educate girls on health, fitness and wellness in a variety of ways as they experiment with new sports and activities and keep moving all year long. With your donation we can reach out to thousands of young woman in eastern Massachusetts and get them moving in the right direction for a bright future.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle has always been part of my life, this is due to the friendships I developed when I was young. As my friends and I grew older afternoon aerobic classes or early morning runs pulled me through so many times. Maintaining a healthy life starts young and important for not only physical but mental wellbeing.
I hope you will support my challenge by giving a gift to my run.
