Today’s G-Team campaign launched on Groupon to benefit Girls On The Run Chicago (GOTRC). GOTRC empowers girls through participation in a 12-week afterschool program to train for a 5k run. The confidence building program joins girls ages 8-13 with mentors who teach them team building, fitness, and lessons on positive self-image.
This is an excellent opportunity for Groupon users to help improve the self-esteem of young girls from low-income communities, as well as promote healthy lifestyle choices.
The campaign already hit its tipping point to fund at least one girl and for every additional $250 raised another girl will be enrolled in the training program. Donations can be made in $5, $10, and $25 increments. Donors who make a $25 donation will also receive free admission to the New Balance Girls On the Run 5k presented by the Chicago Fire on November 13th to run along with the Girls On The Run.
The G-Team campaign for Girls On The Run Chicago is featured today on Groupon and will run until midnight tomorrow, September 30th. Look for the campaign in the side bar of the Groupon Chicago page.
