Happy December! This month, we are donating 10% of our December Etsy sales to Girls on the Run Lancaster.
Girls on the Run is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential.
This is such a wonderful and important organization that is close to our hearts. Laura Mae was an assistant coach for the organization several years back. We wish such a great program existed when we were young girls!
About Girls on the Run:
Girls on the Run is the program for girls in 3rd-5th grade that encourages girls to recognize their individual strengths and celebrate connections with others. Each season, girls gain a better understanding of who they are and what’s important to them, the value of teamwork and healthy relationships and how they can have a positive impact on the world. Girls also make a meaningful contribution to their community through a team-organized Community Impact Project. Physical activity is woven into the program to inspire an appreciation for fitness and healthy habits and teach life skills including treating others with care, practicing gratitude and managing emotions. Each season culminates with a Girls on the Run 5K event. This celebratory, non-competitive event provides girls with a sense of accomplishment and instills the value of goal setting at a young age.
Thank you for helping us give to an organization that empowers young girls through curriculum and running!
