Raising Self Esteem in Young Girls

June 19, 2007 at 12:30 pm 1 comment

There are just about 4 months left until I run the 1/2 marathon. The training is going well, I started lifting weights yesterday and am pretty sore today, but hopefully as I get use to it that will change.

Fundraising is going pretty well, but has sort of leveled off.  So  I am hoping that I can get people to talk to their friends, co-workers, families about possibly donating as little as $1.00 or as much as they can to Team Tiara to Benefit Girls on the Run.

Girls on the Run is an awesome program that teaches little girls about running as well as raises their self-esteem and educates them on bullying, gossip, drugs, being thankful, standing up for yourself, community service as well as other great lessons. The program culminates in a 5k that the girls run with other women from the community.

It teaches girls to feel good about their bodies and that they can run.

The money I raise will go to help keep the program running. It is a non-profit program  with volunteer coaches.

Please help if you can.
