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 program for girls age eight to thirteen years old offered at local schools and YMCAs across metro Detroit. The program combines training for a 5k, 3.1 mile running event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts. The goals of the program are to encourage positive emotional, social, mental, and physical development.
The total cost for the 10 week program is $130 per girl. But not every girl's family can afford that, and many schools we'd like to run the program in can't even offer it at that cost. With your help, the Y will be able to scholarship 200 girls this fall and next spring, and we won't have to turn any girls away for their inability to pay. Will you help us empower 200 young ladies in Metro Detroit?
If you would like your donation designated to a particular city/school/YMCA, please note that in the comments section.
