Girls on the Run-Chicago is an after-school program that uses the power of running to educate and prepare 3rd-8th grade girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. The positive youth development program combines training for a non-competitive 5k (3.1 miles) running event with interactive lessons that encourage positive emotional, social, mental, and physical development among participants.

Since 1999, Girls on the Run-Chicago has served more than 35,000 girls across six Chicagoland counties with more than 50% of these participants residing in low-income, under-served communities. In 2014 we expect to award nearly 1 million dollars in program scholarships and subsidies, but we can't do this without your help!

Please make a tax deductible contribution today to help us maintain our commitment to say "yes" to EVERY girl who wants to cross that 5K finish line next spring!
