We believe that every girl
can embrace who she is,
can define who she wants to be,
can rise to any challenge,
can change the world.
Girls on the Run® is a life-changing, experiential learning programs for girls age eight to thirteen years old. The programs combine training for a 3.1 mile running event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts.
Our goal this year is to provide sponsorships for 30 girls within the city of Detroit to participate in the upcoming seasons of GOTR. In Detroit, where child obesity is altogether too common and the proper running shoes are hard to come by, our goal includes funding for healthy snacks, program fees and gear for the girls to run in (shoes, socks, shorts and a shirt). The total cost of the program is $133 per girl. Can YOU empower a young lady in Detroit?
