Girls on the Run - Chicago inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
I'm proud to be on the Associate Board and would love your support with our upcoming 5K races. In these races, each girl (or boy) is joined by a “running buddy” to cheer them on, support them and make sure they reach that finish line. While the girls’ registration cost is included in their program fees, each “running buddy” must register $35 to enter. This subsidized fee helps aid race costs. Over 85% of girls in our programs receive some sort of financial support to participate, with over 50% coming from low-income communities. Race registration can be a difficult cost for some families. As a member of the GOTRC Associate Board, I want to be sure every girl has a running buddy and we are “in her corner.” Having a supportive adult cheering on can create enormous impact for any child.
Please consider donating to sponsor a running buddy. Thank you!
