Girls on the Run
No More Poverty (nmp.org) and its co-founders Michael Omidi and Julian Omidi, are pleased to support Girls on the Run of Los Angeles County and its creative and innovative programs for young women. Girls on the Run uses fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running to inspire girls 8-14 years old to be joyful, healthy, and confident.
“Girls on the Run is doing fabulous work to empower young women to see and strive for their full potential,” says No More Poverty’s co-founder Julian Omidi. “Their work to improve the health, fitness, and education of the next generation is remarkable. It is an incredibly powerful program with proven results for enhancing self-esteem and we are happy to support it.”
Girls on the Run of Los Angeles County (gotrlosangeles.org) combines training for a non-competitive running event with lessons that help young women to recognize and honor their individual strengths and talents. Lessons inspire the girls to honor their voices, recognize their gifts, and activate their power. With a detailed curriculum of games, activities, discussions, and running, girls experience the joy of simply being themselves. The 12-week program concludes with a celebration of the girls’ success with participation in a non-competitive 5k (3.1 mile) walk/run. The goal in the end is for every girl to know and activate her limitless potential and be free to boldly pursue her dreams.
Girls on the Run International is a 501c3 organization operating in more than 150 cities across North America, changing the lives of thousands of girls every year. Molly Barker, MSW, is a four-time Hawaii Ironman triathlete and founded the organization in 1996.
No More Poverty (nmp.org) is a not-for-profit charity organization with a pending 501c3 application founded by brothers Michael Omidi, M.D. and Julian Omidi.
