Review for Girls Gotta Run Foundation Incorporated, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I joined the volunteering family at the Girls Gotta Run Foundation (GGRF) in 2010 after attending a fundraising event they were hosting in Washington, D.C. I was immediately drawn to the organization, and wanted to contribute in whatever way I could. Having grown up in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia myself, the mission and passion behind GGRF hits very close to home for me. I wanted to be able to create more awareness for the organization, and let the world know about the remarkable things that they are accomplishing. Having been involved from an online marketing and communications perspective for close to 2 years now, I'm incredibly proud to see all the growth and the increase in awareness and engagement with the the GGRF brand. Empowering the girls and providing them with these incredible opportunities to further themselves has deeply rooted effects on their lives. They're not just "training to become runners". That's too simplified. They're getting educated, developing as strong, young women and taking a stab at working towards a dream that may have not been otherwise recognized. The bottom line is, GGRF is a phenomenal collection of people all working in whatever capacity they can to bring change to these girls lives. And that's nothing short of incredible.
