My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Girls Gotta Run Foundation Incorporated, Washington, DC, USA
Girls Gotta Run is a small, committed and growing organization that empowers young Ethiopian girls through both athletics and education. I first learned of GGRF by looking at this unique artwork at a local bookstore here in Washington, DC. All of the pieces included shoes. Upon taking a closer look, I learned that a nonprofit had been started to give Ethiopian girls running shoes. Running was a way for them to delay marriage and invest in their own life. And they lacked shoes! I was a competitive runner in my day so I know how running had meant so much to me in terms of a platform for my life and my character. So, the least I could do was give a barefoot Ethiopian girl a pair of shoes and thus, a greater chance at life. So, I learned about GGRF and the rest is history. I have since joined the Board and continued my commitment to this great cause.
