Remember Nichyria Byrd?
Well, it turns out your votes may have helped her win the Youth Achievement Award at the ESPYs this year!!! She had over 100,000 votes from around the world!! After receiving a prestigious award in L.A. she returned home to Chicago only to be met with even more good news!!
The Chicago White Sox invited Nichyria to throw out the first pitch at Monday evening’s game against the Boston Red Sox!!!!
We are so proud to have been a part of Nichyria’s success and wish her all the best in her future, on and off the race track! Go GOTR!!
And if you are unfamiliar with the Girls on the Run program, please check out their website!!!!

So, a while back, we worked on a promotional video for Girls on the Run Chicago. If you’re not familiar, GOTR is an organization which promotes self confidence and health in young girls through the power of running. It’s really a great organization and I was so glad to be a part of last year’s marathon! Well, the girl we focused on was a little girl named Nichyria Byrd!
Anyway, Nichyria is back in the spotlight! Nichyria has been nominated for ESPN’s first-ever “Youth Achievement Award”!!! She is one of just five nominees from across the country, and the ONLY from the Midwest!!! We’re very proud of Nichyria and wish her tons of luck!
But she needs more than luck…she needs YOUR vote to win!!!
Online voting is open through June 15th!!
