In 2014, with support from the Talmer Bank / Free Press marathon and hundreds of metro Detroiters, Girls on the Run was fortunate to provide scholarships for over 100 girls in the area. This year, we are doubling our goal and our impact. 100% of contributions stay in Metro Detroit!
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. Can.
Girls on the Run® is a life-changing, experiential learning program for girls age eight to thirteen years old offered at local YMCAs across metro Detroit. The program combine training for a 3.1 mile running event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts. The goals of the program are to encourage positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development. The total cost for the 10 week program is $120 per girl. With your help, the Y will be able to scholarship 200 girls, and we won't have to turn girls away for their inability to pay. Will you help us empower 200 young ladies of Metro Detroit?
