Run the World.

A couple of months ago, I started helping out with an awesome organization called She's the First. STF is a non-profit that sponsors girls' education in developing countries, helping them become the first in their families to graduate from high school. Funds are raised by young people all over the United States who host cupcake bake sales (and so many other cool events), sponsor girls individually and raise awareness via social media. It's a fantastic cause that's so close to my heart.

Today, we started our Run the World campaign, which encourages athletes and non-athletes alike to run for change throughout the spring. With proceeds from this program, we hope to sponsor the education of 100 girls from Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, South Sudan, India, Nepal and Guatemala. Check out the link to read more about how to set up a fundraising page so that friends, family and coworkers can match your miles or minutes.

What's better than supporting the education of one of these smart, lovely young women while also doing something good for your health?
