Charity Miles Champion: Marco Benavides


This week’s Charity Miles Champion is Marco Benavides. He has a goal of completing hundreds of miles for Girl Up, dedicated to his daughters. See his story 👇

My name is Marco Benavides, I live in Costa Rica. I’m a father of three little girls. I want them to be happy, be loved, feel safe and challenge themselves to “dream big and go big”.


I have committed to 500 miles by Q1-2016 because I want to become a Charity Miles Ambassador. I have selected Girl Up as my target charity because I truly believe in GirlUp’s values and guiding principles.

I’m very fortunate to have the opportunity to provide my three girls with love, housing, food, education and other resources every day. I’d love to help other girls in developing countries to find opportunities to succeed and reach higher goals too. I want them to “dream big and go big” as my three little girls!

Charity Miles, the Sponsors & Girl Up provided me with a great way to add even more value and purpose to my workouts. Thanks guys! 

Dream big, Go big!!! Every mile counts!!!
