I have to say…no, I need to say…no, I want to say what an incredible time we had at LEC Media on location with the Berewick Elementary Chapter of Girls on the Run®. Absolutely amazing is how I will describe the experience we had over a couple of hours.
I should preface those comments with exactly what LEC Media is doing with and for Girls on the Run®. Girls on the Run® is an incredible organization that operates an innovative, experiential program combining training for a 5k event with life-changing, confidence building lessons that enhance the physical and mental health of 8 – 12 year old girls.
Girls on the Run was founded here in Charlotte by Molly Barker, MSW, and four-time Hawaii Ironman triathlete founded Girls on the Run® in 1996. Combining her counseling and teaching expertise with research on adolescent issues, she developed and delivered the first curriculum with 13 girls here in Charlotte.
OK, now for what LEC Media is doing with our video production. We are shooting and producing a series of videos ranging from 3-minutes to 45-seconds that will run on the new Girls on the Run® website that will debut early in 2012, plus the video will be shown at their annual meeting in January 2012.
So why are we amazed at LEC Media with Girls on the Run®? Simply, they affect the lives of girls, women and men across the globe. It took literally 15 minutes for us to get an emotional “slap in the face” as to the incredible program and power that founder Molly Barker has developed. They literally affect several hundred thousand people across the globe…and that is growing exponentially as this movement spreads.
If you have girls in your life between the ages of 8-12 years of age, find out more how you can get them involved with Girls on the Run®. You’ll be amazed at the power that this kind and organized program has. I know that we sure were at LEC Media.
