Educate Girls and Run the World with She's the First!
What We're Doing:This March through June, She's the First, a not-for-profit that sponsors girls' educations in developing nations, gives you a fun opportunity to send more girls to school. It's as simple as asking friends and family to support you in a race, or organizing your own fitness fundraiser, from yoga to spinning classes.
Why We're Doing It:Less than 33% of girls in developing nations enroll in secondary school--and even fewer complete it. (Learn more about the global education crisis here.) When girls graduate, they break the poverty cycle and entire communities reap the benefits. 100% of your net proceeds* will go directly to girls' tuition in our partner schools, because without us, they wouldn't be able to afford their right to an education (*after credit card transaction fees).
Are You In? Here's What To Do By June 30:1. Choose to run a race or organize a fitness fundraiser in March-June.
2. Create a CauseVox fundraising page (click the button on the right-hand side of this page). Ask friends, family, and co-workers to match your miles or minutes by June 30th.
3. Cheer on the team! Join our Facebook group of runners, make new friends, and motivate each other.
The Goal:To raise $50,000 to sponsor the education of 100 girls from Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, South Sudan, India, Nepal, and Guatemala. These are girls who otherwise would be denied their right to a basic education.
