On Tuesday, April 4th, members of the Girls on the Run of Greater Boston Marathon team, including Southie resident and Coppersmith employee, Stephani Dazzo, will host a “Countdown to Boston” Marathon Fundraiser. With less than 2 weeks to the Marathon on Monday, April 17th, the team will be celebrating with supporters with food, drink and raffle prizes.
Prizes include a weekend stay on Cape Cod, New Balance shoes, spa treatments, exercise classes and more! Tickets to the event are $20 and raffle tickets will be available for purchase at the event.
Proceeds from the event will go directly to the Girls on the Run program, which offers girls in grades 3-8 with an after school running program. The program inspires girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.
Please join us Tuesday, April 4th to support this great organization!
