#GivingTuesday is a day dedicated to giving. Have you found where you might give? No? Well, have a got the place for you.

Girls on the Run is just the kinda place you can’t resist. Over the course of 10 weeks our curriculum designed for 3rd – 8th graders covers lessons that encourages positive emotional, social, mental, and physical development. The leave the program with important strategies and skills to help them navigate life. If that doesn’t get you right there, then let me just show you a few faces that will get you hook, line, and sinker.

GOTR Fall 2012 2

GOTR Fall 2013

These are the faces of some of the girls that I have had the sweet privilege of getting to know in #GOTR. Each one of these girls has touched my life in a remarkable way.

It costs  $160 per girl and over 60% of our girls receive some kind of scholarship. This is where you come in, peeps. By clicking the link, you can make a monetary donation to help offset some of these costs –> DONATE HERE.

You know what else? Money isn’t the only thing we have to give. Want to give a little time and service? #GOTR has the chance for that too. Everything from Coaching a team to being a running buddy at our end of season 5K. Learn more about volunteer opportunities here, –> VOLUNTEER HERE.

Our San Antonio groups are currently wrapping up the season and preparing for our end of season 5K. Each girl is paired with a running buddy whose sole job is to ensure each girl gets across the finish line. Encouraging each of these girls to accomplish their individual goals has to be one of THE most inspiring things I have ever done. Want to be inspired too? Come out to our race on December 14th. Details can be found here. GOTR 5K–> REGISTER HERE.
