How to Get Involved

Another way to make a positive impact, volunteers are at the heart of our program. We are always seeking people to help coach a team, facilitate our 5k running event, and be a running buddy for participants. Visit our volunteer page to find out how you can lend a hand!

Who We Are

Each year, Girls on the Run coordinates a 10-week program that culminates in a 5k run, all the while using interactive lessons and running games to strengthen and develop participants both physically and emotionally.

Using running as the catalyst, we teach motivation, confidence, social skills, and the value of lifelong fitness. The program is an investment in the young women of our future. Girls on the Run shares an experience based upon life lessons, inspiring girls to define themselves and set forth confidently on the path of their choosing.

Creating Impact

We offer wholesome experiences for our participants as well as those who guide them on their 10-week journey. Girls between 3rd and 5th grade participate in one program while girls between 6th and 8th grade have their own.

The coaches, schools, and parents get to experience the development of our young participants and are often affected by the growth and learning they witness along the way.

Make a Difference

Sponsors are among the many heroes behind our program, providing us with the financial resources to realize the  meaningful goals set forth by our organization. Whether you’re looking for individual ways to contribute or for corporate sponsorship opportunities, there are a number of ways to make a positive impact.
