June’s Girl Heroes are Board Members, Doug & Erin!
This month, we celebrate former Board of Directors members Erin Kenny and Doug Jackson as our Girl and Guy Heroes! Erin and Doug joined our board in 2010 and have been tireless champions for our program and girls over the past six years. We are so thankful to both of these hard working board members for their commitment to our mission and the many ways that they have positively impacted Girls on the Run.
During their board terms, Erin ensured the fiscal security and strength of our organization as she served as our Treasurer and Finance Committee chair, while Doug served as Program Committee chair before taking a lead role in Board Governance. Their thoughtful and strategic leadership over the past six years has enabled us to grow our program by 76% (from 850 girls a year to almost 1,500!), something that Erin says she is particularly proud of helping to accomplish. Doug has been instrumental in increasing the diversity, accessibility, and quality of our programming these past 6 years. And together, they’ve watched literally thousands of girls cross the finish line of their very first 5K.
Thank you, Doug and Erin, for all you’ve done for our Girls on the Run community! We are better and stronger organization because of you.
