I've been fortunate enough to become a mentor for The Girls Network this year. I've witnessed the huge impact they have breaking down barriers that girls experience such as the pressure to conform to ideals, a lack of confidence and self-belief and a lack of professional female role models in their networks.
As a Mum of a young girl I want to go further and raise funds to help them to continue to deliver their mission to inspire and empower girls from the least advantaged communities by connecting them with a mentor and a network of professional female role models.
Throughout August I'm committing to run 5k every single day and I'd be very grateful if you could support by making a donation, no matter how small. Thank you very much x
