First of all, I cannot thank you all enough for being so flexible and willing to take part in our new Virtual Run for a Reason 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run. Greenville Women’s League chose Daughters of Worth for our “reason” to run this year.
Many of you have asked what the race proceeds will be used for. They will used to provide an opportunity to serve the girls of our community and ensure that they are safe, advocated for and have their basic needs met. In addition to connecting with 400 girls/families that are served throughout each month; they are also serving girls that are “off the radar” from being served by other organizations. Girls who are homeless, abused/neglected, trafficked, self-harming, victims of domestic violence, teen moms, living in dire poverty and more are able to find hope and a safe haven with Daughters of Worth. In addition, your funds are helping to provide 4 homeless children with meals, clothing, hygiene items, and activities! This race will make help make these things possible.
