Girls on the Run inspires girls to build lives of purpose and to make a meaningful contribution to community and society. For each 5K, GOTR MoCo selects a Charity Partner. GOTR participants and their families are encouraged to bring a donation for the Charity Partner to the 5K as an opportunity to put GOTR lessons into action. The Spring 2017 5K Charity Partner is Patriot Point.
Patriot Point provides a relaxing and safe environment to enjoy outdoor recreational activities for our nation’s wounded, ill and injured service members and their families. At Patriot Point, our nation’s warriors are able to reconnect with their families and their caregivers, decompress after a deployment, or just take some time to rejuvenate.
Situated on 290 acres of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, fronting two pristine waterways and just a short distance from the Chesapeake Bay, Patriot Point has one thing in mind: Creating a destination for those who have valiantly served our nation so that they can recharge, refresh and rejuvenate away from the stresses and challenges of their everyday lives.
Donations are crucial to Patriot Point's ability to fulfill its mission to provide a relaxing and safe environment to enjoy outdoor recreational activities. Please consider bringing your donations to the 5K to support this incredible organization! For a list of needed items please check out the Patriot Point Wish List.
