BENEFITING: GIRLS ON THE RUN OF NOVA
SPONSOR A GIRL
Your donation in support of the Girls on the Run of NOVA Scholarship Fund will help us achieve our goal to never turn a girl away for financial reasons.
We use these funds to provide program scholarships to 3rd-8th grade girls from families in Northern Virginia with incomes at or below the Federal Poverty Level.
Providing any girl with access to programs that emphasize physical activity, self-esteem, and healthy lifestyles – like Girls on the Run -- will enable economically vulnerable girls in Northern Virginia to achieve their full potential.
Girls on the Run program outcomes have been evaluated since 2001. The research shows, with statistical significance, that girls who complete the program have higher self-esteem, a healthier body image, exercise more, and feel a greater sense of inter-personal support for physical activity.
Thanks to our donors and sponsors, Girls on the Run of Northern Virginia provided $167,725 in scholarships to girls in 2013, and we are projecting even greater need for financial assistance in 2014.
$306 - provides scholarships for an entire season for 2 girls with the highest level of need
$153 - provides a scholarship for an entire season for 1 girl with the highest level of need
$100 - provides a scholarship for 1 girl for an entire season
$70 - is the cost for 2 girls to participate in the end-of-season 5K
$35 - is the cost for 1 girl to participate in the end-of-season 5K
$__ - any amount to the general scholarship fund allows low-income girls in Northern Virginia to participate in the Girls on the Run program.
Any amount you can give is appreciated and contributes to the Girls on the Run NOVA Scholarship Fund. No amount is too small.
THANK YOU for sharing our passion for helping girls gain the skills and confidence they need to positively connect with and shape the world.
