Giving Back to Bring GOTR to Southern MD
Giving Back to Empower Yourself AND Young Girls
This holiday season, I've enjoyed giving back through my participation in several events hosted by friends and public figures.
Inspired by these amazing women, I knew I wanted to come up with a way to create my own way to give back, but I was having trouble thinking of the perfect idea until yesterday.
How I'm Giving Back (and YOU Can Join Me!)
Now through the end of the 2016, I've decided to donate the profits of my new book, Superwomen Secrets Revealed, to Bring Girls on the Run to Southern Maryland.
Get your copy of the book HERE to join me in giving back.
BONUS: If you send me a copy of your receipt and the name you want shared, I will even give you a shout out on the Fit Armadillo social media sites!
Get the #NewBook that will help you hit your #2017goals + #GiveBack (yr end proceeds -> Bring @GOTR to SoMD!)
Why Bring GOTR to Southern MD?
A few months back, Fit Armadillo personal trainer, Melissa, shared that her local community in Southern Maryland was banding together to raise money so they could start their own Girls on the Run (GOTR) chapter.
Girls on the Run is my favorite non-profit. If you follow me on Twitter, you might have noticed that I know I log almost 90% of my Charity Miles for the organization. Needless to say, I didn't hesitate to join in on the cause!
However, I didn't even think to ask for an update until earlier this week.
Well, I checked in with Melissa and found out that the Bring Girls to Southern MD group is still about $2,500 away from their fundraising goal.
Help Bring @GOTR to #SoMD with your purchase of this #NewBook! Empower yourself + young girls! #giveback
I couldn't think of a better group to give back to!
Today (December 21st), my book is still $0.99. Tomorrow, I will raise the rate to $9.99 so we can make a bigger impact.
Why Connect the Book to Bring GOTR to Southern MD?
My goal for my book was to help you empower yourself to enjoy the many positive benefits you'll experience when you make fitness a part of your daily routine.
The mission of the non-profit Girls on the Run (GOTR) is to empower girls through running.
Of course, it has been my hope that over time the impact of the book on the lives of the women who read it would trickle down to impact young girls. However, being able to have this happen more directly by donating the book profits to Bring GOTR to Southern Maryland is so exciting because this can happen sooner!
Proceeds from this #NewBook will be donated to Bring @GOTR to #SoMD -they are just $2500 from their goal! #GiveBack
Why I Love Girls on the Run (GOTR)
The mission of GOTR is to empower young girls through running. As someone who did not find fitness empowering until I discovered running, this cause is very closer to my heart!
Discovering running in middle school definitely changed my life in a positive way and as a teacher and coach, I personally witnessed the impact it had on my student athletes.
I'm so excited to be able to give back to this amazing organization by donating to the cause of the prospective GOTR chapter.
I know donating to the larger GOTR organization would also make a positive impact for young girls (and this is where the profits will go, if the group doesn't reach their goal). However, I'd love to be able to help this specific chapter that Fit Armadillo is connected to through certified personal trainer Melissa, get started!
I hope you will join me and we can celebrate GOTR Southern Maryland becoming an official chapter in 2017!
