Join the Girls on the Run of Southeast TN Marathon in a Month challenge as we move 26.2 miles during the month of March. As you run, walk, row, bike (or move in whatever way you choose) for 26.2 miles over the course of the month, you’ll get support along the way from our Girls on the Run council and the other Marathon in a Month participants, all while raising funds for the Girls on the Run of Southeast TN Scholarship Fund.
Feel free to be creative and make the Marathon in a Month challenge your own – the way you choose to move is up to you! Instead of moving 26.2 miles over the course of the month, you could challenge yourself to do 26 pushups or 26.2 minutes of yoga every day in the month of March. We hope you will post your challenge on our Marathon in a Month Facebook page to inspire others.
We encourage you to get support from friends, family, and coworkers for your challenge while raising money for Girls on the Run of Southeast Tennessee’s Scholarship Fund. This Scholarship Fund is essential to our council, as we believe that Girls on the Run is for every girl, and we never turn a girl away from the program for financial reasons. Each season as many as 52% of program participants require financial assistance, and the Scholarship Fund allows them to receive full or partial scholarship, depending on their need.
Marathon in a month fundraising goals are automatically set to $262, but participants can change that goal – we would love to see higher fundraising goals to ensure that all girls in our community have access to the Girls on the Run program. Participants who raise at least $262 will receive a Girls on the Run t-shirt.
Marathon in a Month teams are welcome and encouraged. Get a group of friends together to hold each other accountable, or bring Marathon in a Month to your workplace!
