Girls on the Run of Northeast Wisconsin was founded in 2012 with one team of 14 girls. Over the last 10 years, we have grown to support 7 counties of northeast Wisconsin including Brown, Calumet, Manitowoc, Outagamie, Sheboygan, Waupaca, and Winnebago. Girls on the Run provides 3 important social-emotional learning programs to girls and non-binary youth in grades 3-8. Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running. We are so much more than running and meeting girls at time when they need the program the most. Research shows that by the age of 9 girls see a drop in self-confidence. Girls on the Run is here to help!
This fall, we hosted our largest program season ever with over 500 participants. With this increased participation comes an increased need for financial assistance, shoes, and sports bras. We distributed over $21,000 in financial assistance, 100 pairs of shoes, and 40 sports bras. This holiday season your gift will make it possible to continue providing these important resources.
