A Year-End Opportunity to be Remarkable!

By Pamela Young on 12/31/2014 | Announcements

Today is the day that you can make sure one more girl discovers and activates the limitless potential she has within her. Today is the day that you can help a girl learn to be the leader of her life, with skills that will help her navigate her world with confidence and joy.

And it’s your last chance to do it this year.

The girls in our program learn that they are surrounded by opportunities to be remarkable! Today we invite you to embrace the opportunity to wrap up the year on an empowering note by making a charitable year-end donation to Girls on the Run International.

Girls on the Run changes lives.

How do we know? We see it happen every season. Girls unleash their limitless potential and learn to celebrate themselves and each other. Their joy, health and confidence grows.

But even if we didn’t see it firsthand, we’d still know because of the many stories girls’ families share with us. Stories like this one, recently shared with one of our coaches:

I had just finished talking with another shopper about Girls on the Run when the cashier turned to me, teary-eyed, and shared the story of her niece who, at one time, would only speak to her immediate family. To the family’s surprise and joy, within a few weeks of starting Girls on the Run, the little girl began to come out of her shell. Eventually, she began talking and laughing with her coaches and teammates! She’s now in the 8th grade, and her teachers can't believe that she ever had a problem talking to people. She regularly shares her thoughts and interacts with others in a positive way. The cashier emotionally thanked me for all that Girls on the Run does, saying, “My family is beyond grateful!”

Experiences like this one reinforce why our program matters. Your support also matters.

You can change lives too.

This blog is about sharing stories that help fuel your limitless potential. Today, we invite you to help us fuel the limitless potential of the girls our organization serves. Please click here to make a year-end gift to Girls on the Run International.

Thank you for believing in our mission of inspiring girls to be joyful, healthy and confident.
