At Girls on the Run, we believe that every girl is unique. She has a unique story to tell, she has a unique talent to share and she has a unique experience that shapes how she sees herself and the world around her. If you are familiar with the program, you know that we aren't trying to fix her. Our program was not designed under the assumption that we need to pick up broken pieces and glue them back together. Our philosophy is that she is born with immeasurable potential. Potential that will shine a bright light on the world. We know (and data proves!) that societal messages and the complicated worlds that our girls grow up in often dim this light. It is our duty, our responsibility, our privilege to ignite the spark that lives within every girl.
As we near the end of a complicated and stressful year, we are intentionally celebrating the power, potential and courage of girls. We celebrate their stories, their drive, their passion and their confidence. We need your help to reach more girls, to empower more girls and to ignite a spark in them to fearlessly chase their dreams.
We invite you to donate in celebration of the 1,400 girls who experienced a GOTR spark 2021!
Thanks to remarkable gifts from adidas and our Board of Directors, donations will be matched x2 through December 31st!
Your gift will help ensure access to more girls in 2022. Your support provides the girls of South Central Wisconsin with a program filled with supportive coaches, potential friendships, and endless opportunities. The gift you give will help girls ignite the spark, find their power, and discover their dreams.
