Fit Girls is growing...and you can help!

On Sunday, November 15, 2015, Seaside Run Club will sponsor the 2nd annual Full Hearts 5K, a 3.1 mile road race through Marblehead designed to generate funds and awareness for the Fit Girls program.

The mission of Fit Girls is to equip girls with the tools to boldly navigate the world with a strong sense of self and a compassion for their community through reading, running and service.  The program aims to create an inclusive, supportive group that enables girls to complete a 5K road race while also teaching tools to create healthy lifestyles. The program helps with the development of team building in a nonjudgmental environment, and instills a sense of community outreach by conducting a service project each session. Fit Girls is designed for girls in 4th-6th grade and now has about 100 girls each season since its inception three years ago.

We’re seeking sponsors for the race which will be open to the public and last year drew over 400 participants. Seaside Run Club is a registered 501(c)(3) organization so donations are tax-deductible. All proceeds from this event will support Seaside Run Club and Fit Girls by helping to enhance the curriculum, provide scholarships to need-based participants, and fulfill additional needs such as liability insurance, registration software, and supplies.  Due to the great success of our local program, Seaside Run Club has recently taken over the national Fit Girls program in an effort to bring this powerful program to other communities. By supporting this event, you will be helping to bring this inspiring program to youth in Marblehead and beyond.

We would appreciate any assistance you can offer. For a donation of $100 or more, your business name will be posted on our website and on posters displayed during race day events.  Those who make a donation of $500 or more will also be listed on our race shirt.
