Well, we might secretly think that girls already run the world but this October they really will. When I was asked by Sweat Pink/Fit Approach to join their campaign to help raise awareness and funds for girls all over the world, I was all in.
As a Girls on The Run Coach and Moms Run This Town chapter leader, I am obviously passionate about women’s issues. It’s truly been my goal to try to encourage the young girls I coach to move their bodies and build their self esteem through running. I’ve been blown away by their spirit and determination.
If Girls Ran The World
When I was asked to be an “everyday hero” and join thousands of women across the world to bring awareness to women’s charities, it seemed a natural fit for me.
Throughout the whole month of October, women around the world will be running virtually and logging their miles to benefit their favorite charities. I’ve decided to log my miles and raise funds for Girls on The Run in Washington, DC. My miles will go towards helping those girls who might not be able to participate due to costs receive a scholarship for the program.
You can participate by registering and logging your miles through Strava or Mapmyfitness and choose a charity that speaks to you to raise funds for. You can run once or a hundred times. There is no minimum to participate.
You can learn more about If Girls Ran The World here. I’d love for you to join me! We are going to run anyway we might as well make it for a great cause. I will be telling you more about this global initiative as we get closer to lacing up and running around the world.
I’m giving away 3 free registrations for 3 of you to join me! You can log miles and win prizes by participating in the challenges each week. Great motivation for a great cause. Enter below to win:
