A MESSAGE FROM Namita's NYC Marathon Fundraiser
Hi! My name is Namita and this November I'll be running my first ever marathon :) Last year, I had a head injury that kept me bedridden for three weeks. After being cooped up, I decided to sign up for a 10k on a whim even though I'd barely been able to run a mile. Running quickly became something in my life that made me feel strong, healthy, and free again.
I'm fundraising for Girls Inc because I believe that every girl deserves the chance to learn, grow, and lead, no matter where they come from. I once benefitted from similar programs like Girls Who Code and Built By Girls, and they quite literally changed the course of my life. I see this as my opportunity to pay it forward. Girls Inc NYC is a fantastic organization that runs leadership and educational programs for girls in underserved communities in New York City. Please donate to my fundraiser to help keep these programs going – you will probably change someone's life!
