At a time when girls can experience social exclusion or struggle to find their place, Girls on the Run offers a positive, confidence-building experience rooted in acceptance, connection and belonging. When you give to Girls on the Run, you are giving a girl a place where she will form friendships, accomplish big things, build her confidence, and recognize and appreciate the unique gifts she has to offer the world.
Girls on the Run is a transformational physical-activity-based, positive youth development program for girls in grades 3-8. We teach critical life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons while creatively integrating running within a supportive girl group. The program culminates with each girl being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K with her team. Your donation will ensure that a girl from low-income family can have this experience, regardless of her family's ability to pay.
