G.I.T. Fit girls after school clubs
G.I.T. Fit-girls in training is an organization that promotes physical, emotional, and spiritual fitness in girls 4th-8th grades. The program started two years ago as a Saturday morning running/Bible club at my church with a handful of girls. Since, it has grown to after school clubs in two middle schools and three elementary schools, and a Wednesday night discipleship class for 5th and 6th grade girls, in addition to the Saturday morning club at my church. This fall, there were 90+ girls participating! What an increase The Lord has given! The girls meet once a week after school for 1 1/2 hours to run, prepare a healthy snack and talk about girl issues. Our talk always includes looking into the Bible to see what God has to say about the issue since God's word is always true and reliable. For 12 weeks, the girls train to run a 5k together. Being a girl is hard, but also awesome! G.I.T. Fit clubs give girls the opportunity to get together to have fun, encourage one another, get fit, and grow closer to God. It is my desire to continue to grow this amazing program by adding more clubs in more schools. But, I need your help! I am raising money to help become a 501(c)3 tax exempt, non profit organization. I am also required by the county board of education to carry liability insurance. And then there is the Georgia state annual corporation registration fee. Well, you get the picture. Growing this incredible organization is going to take a group effort. Please consider partnering with me to make a difference in the lives of thousands of girls through G.I.T. Fit clubs. Together we can help girls understand how fearfully and wonderfully the have been made by God! We can help them reach their full potential in life by embracing God's plan and purpose for them. Separately, the goal of $1500 may seem daunting. But, together we can make it happen! Thank you so much for partnering with me to minister to girls in our community!

That is what G.I.T. Fit is doing...and in the public schools!
