Description

Florida International Order of the Rainbow for Girls (FLIORG) is celebrating their 75th anniversary. FLIORG strives to give girls the tools, training, and encouragement to let their individual spirits shine bright.  By providing members with a safe fun, caring environment where responsible, older girls can interact and mentor younger girls through family involvement.  The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls, called Rainbow for short, teachers leadership skills and public speaking.  It builds self-respect, confidence, poise, patriotism, fidelity, integrity and character, all while providing a fun and safe environment for girls to meet other girls their age and to build friendships that will last a lifetime. If you would like more information about FLIORG please check out the website www.fliorg.org.

Money raised from this virtual run will help the FLIORG state service project Camp Boggy Creek.  Camp Boggy Creek is a place of dreams, of joy, of possibilities. A camp where children with serious illnesses and their families can forget the word “no” for a little while and embrace the promise of “yes”. Camp Boggy Creek was founded in 1996 by Paul Newman and General H. Norman Schwarzkopf, with one simple premise in mind, that every child, no matter their illness, could experience the transformational spirit and friendships that go hand in hand with camp. With unobtrusive expert medical care, it was their dream that Camp would provide seriously ill children with a fun-filled experience defined by compassion, laughter and acceptance. Since 1996, Camp Boggy Creek has made it possible for children with serious illnesses to enjoy a camp experience in a safe, medically-sound environment. For more information about Camp Boggy Creek please go to their website at www.boggycreek.org.

All runners will receive a participation medal for their support of Florida Rainbow and Camp Boggy Creek.
