#TeamGEM Runner

I'm running for #TeamGEM!

On Saturday, September 19, 2020, I will be participating in the Yorkville 5K Virtual Run to raise funds for Girls E-Mentorship (GEM). Sponsor my run to help us mentor more high school girls facing socio-economic barriers, reduce systemic barriers and improve academic opportunities for these incredible young women.

Support my run for mentorship

Thank you for sponsoring me, and for helping a GEMgirl!
