I have the privilege of serving on the board of Girls on the Run Capital Region, a nonprofit organization designed to enhance girls’ social, emotional and physical skills. Throughout the course of the after school program, girls learn valuable lessons from trained coaches such as goal setting and the importance of positive self talk. At the end of the 10 weeks, the girls run a 5K race, allowing them to gain confidence through their accomplishment and achieving their goal!
We're grateful for the generous support of our donors and sponsors. During a difficult time with much uncertainty that forced many organizations to cut back, we have continued growing thanks to our powerful community! At GOTR Capital Region we continue to serve more girls each year, we've expanded our staff so we can better meet the needs of the girls that we serve, and we plan to continue to increase our success.
We’re thrilled to share that we’re serving almost 40% more girls this fall - again helping us to strive towards our goal of bringing this programming to more girls than ever before! We’re hosting our third annual Board-wide fundraising campaign so we can continue bringing Girls on the Run to more girls in the Capital Region. Will you help us with this goal today?
