Run the World, Sponsor a Girl

I’d like to introduce you to someone very special.

Meet Anita.

Anita is a 2nd grader in Nepal. She loves math and reading and has big plans for her future. Anita dreams of becoming a doctor when she grows up, but first she needs to graduate from school.

On April 14th, I’ll be running in my first 5K. I’m not running just to get into shape, I’m running to send girls to school — girls like Anita.

Training for the Run the World with She’s the First 5K started three weeks ago and it hasn’t exactly been a walk in the park. Week 1 my running partner gave up. Week 2 it rained. But whenever I face a bump in the road, I think of Anita and all the other girls who desperately want the chance to go to school. I keep running.

Just two months after I co-founded a chapter of She’s the First at my school (a non-profit that sponsors girls’ education in the developing world), our little club baked and sold over 1,000 cupcakes — enough to send three girls to school in Nepal. Anita is one of those girls.

My goal for this semester is to sponsor three more scholars through our Run the World 5K. These girls deserve an education so they can make their dreams come true.

If you’d like to help me sponsor girls in Nepal, girls like Anita, please consider supporting me here. 100% of the donations go directly to girls’ sponsorship.
