“A Community For Girls: The Power Of One”
It only takes one girl to inspire change and hope in a community, especially in developing countries.
The Running Goddess is an organization committed to supporting women and girls in their pursuit of health and education. Through your race involvement, girls locally and abroad will be uplifted. By nurturing a girl’s love of science or giving girls the opportunity to attend school, your contribution will make a difference.
Our race is a family event and we welcome everyone to show their support. This year we are proud to sponsor the following organizations:
- KEEP/ Apne Aap: Helping at-risk girls in India.
- Boys and Girls Club of Northern Westchester: “Smart Girls Get Science” program at Westmoreland Sanctuary.
- The Running Goddess Scholarship: Offered to a local, athletic, high school girl with an interest in majoring in the sciences.
- Asian University for Women/ The Running Goddess International Scholarship: A women’s college based in Bangladesh, they provide a Westernized curriculum for gifted young women from countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal and Syria. Offered to an AUW student majoring in the sciences.
We also welcome My Sisters’ Place race team as participants in our event this year. My Sisters’ Place provides support for women and children in Westchester affected by domestic violence and human trafficking. We are pleased to have been chosen as one of the fund-raising events for their organization.
So come race or walk with us at the exquisite Lasdon Park in Somers, NY on June 1st at 8 a.m. Live your healthy lifestyle while contributing to worthy causes. A double dose of good is good for everyone.
