Girls on the Run inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
Help me reach my gol of raising the $2500 needed to scholarship an entire team to participate in the 12 week program.
A $165 donation scholarships a Girl who otherwise would't be able to participate.
A $100 donation buys healthy, nutritious snacks for an entire team for the whole season.
A $50 donation provides a pair of quality running shoes to ensure her health and safety.
Every dollar donated helps us inspire girls to celebrate their bodies, honor their voices, recognize their gifts, and activate their power!
The 12-week program for 3rd-8th grade girls combines training for a 5K event along with lessons on making healthy choices. Each lesson of the curriculum uses warm-ups and workouts that encourage emotional, mental, social, and physical well being. At the end of the 12 week season, all of our local Girls on the Run teams come together for a culminating 5K event and celebration.
Through a deep commitment to empowerment and social justice, Girls on the Run offers supportive role models, positive lessons and physical activity at a critical time when girls often face negative pressures of how to behave, look and think. It is much more than a running program; GOTR is nutrition for the body, mind and soul, and works to instill a sense of confidence in girls that will take them into adolescence and beyond, ready to take on the world.
Girls on the Run honors its core values. We strive to:
Recognize our power and responsibility to be intentional in our decision making
Embrace our differences and find strength in our connectedness
Express joy, optimism and gratitude through our words, thoughts and actions
Nurture our physical, emotional and spiritual health
Lead with an open heart and assume positive intent
Stand up for ourselves and others
Key words that align with our core values:
