Many of us can remember the first days of college like it was yesterday. The thrill of finding out who our teachers were (and better yet, who was in our class), being introduced to new subjects, books, and friends. It was an irreplaceable experience!
School opens doors to the places that shape our future. And, unfortunately, many girls around the world live without access to it. In fact, only one in five girls in the developing world finish primary school, and only one out of every three countries has as many girls as boys in secondary schools.
What’s also eye-opening is how little it takes to provide education, and how a few years of school can change not only a girl’s life, but also her family’s and community’s.
That is why we’re thrilled to announce the newest member of the Charity Miles fam: She’s the First! We’ve been working behind-the-scenes with founder, Tammy Tibbetts, for months and couldn’t be more excited to see this partnership finally come to life.
So please help us give them a warm welcome by doing some Charity Miles for them today. Every mile helps change a girl’s life!
