As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, Girls on the Run held a wine & cheese event to celebrate the organization and raise money for the new year. It had been a rough day at work, and a few glasses of wine and some good girlfriends was the perfect cure, but more importantly the event was a HUGE success! We got to try 6 different wines at the Wine Merchant, 2 whites and 4 reds with a beautiful cheese spread. My personal favorite was the first white wine we tried, NV Terra Antiga Vinho Verde-Portugal. Overall though, the most important thing was that we raised over $750 for Girls on the Run, which will help young girls become more confident, strong and healthy girls!
Even you couldn't make it to the event, don't worry you can still be a part of this amazing organization. The girls are beginning to train for the Girls On the Run Greater Cincinnati 5k on November 21st. There are a plethora of ways to participate from simply donating money, volunteering the day of the race, becoming a coach or running buddy or becoming a SoleMate. I am hoping to help out on race day in some fashion or another, you are more than welcome to join me! To all the ladies who came out last Thursday, I hope you had as much fun as I did!
