Three years ago, I took up running and completed my first marathon. Since that time, I have improved my nutrition, my wellness and most interestingly and importantly, my self-esteem. I can only imagine how girl's sports and proper nutrition could empower at-risk kids. I am interested in finding volunteer opportunities (in the boston area) and/or research into that area. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks for your help! - Jill

Thanks so much for your note to Feminist.com. I'm a fellow marathon runner--so ditto on the the self-esteem boost you can get from it. Unfortunately, I'm not a fellow nutritionist--I'm deep into deadlines right now and living off of Rice Krispy Treats, Coffee and Cheese Quesadillas.

Anyway... moments before I read your email, I was reading the latest issue of Sports Illustrated for Women, which I just received in the mail. In their "Hot Happenings" Section, they list a number of resources for women's sports information. I suggest you research some of these places for suggestions of how to get involved in programs specifically in Boston:

That's a start--good luck.
