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

Rating: 5 stars  

Growing up in Eugene, OR (Track Town USA) inspired an interest in running at an early age. But hearing Kayla Nolan speak passionately about Girls Gotta Run Foundation and their mission really opened my eyes to the enormous good that running can bring into the life of impoverished girls in Ethiopia. Talent can only get you so far, and GGRF provides the additional help to enable some to become professional athletes, and all to develop personal power. The GGRF not only provides the material support that enables these girls to train and run, it empowers them to further their education by staying in school, avoid early marriage and young pregnancies, and gives them a chance at a better life. That is an incredibly powerful outcome for a small involvement on my part. And as the GGRF says, "Strong Girls, Strong World!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wish the GGRF could come to the attention of some of the big athletics companies in the U.S. Individuals like me do what they can, but they are such a worthy and wonderful organization, they could use some deep pockets donors.
