Isn't it funny how you reach a certain age and you stop thinking the world revolves around you? I'll be honest, it probably took me longer than most (see stand-up comedy career) but the more requests we receive for help here at Fairy Tales, the more I want to get out there and do something! We love finding organizations to pair with and this year we helped support Girls on the Run and the Good+ Foundation.
Girls on the Run empowers young girls throughout the year. Their mission statement is simple: “We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.” Their ideas aren’t new, yet I think they are sometimes lost. GOTR teaches our girls to find their inner strength, to embrace our differences, to connect, be kind & empathetic, to stand up for themselves and encourage them to be leaders. Does it get any better than that? We supported GOTR 5Ks across the country this year and we look forward to many more.
I hope to raise 2 of these heroes by teaching them to give back to those less fortunate and to arm them with the tools necessary to help make the world a better place. And if they run a race or two – well that's just a bonus!
