Your support of Girls on the Run NYC provides safe and inclusive spaces for girls in grades 3 - 8 to learn social-emotional skills incorporated into our movement-based curriculum.
During an incredibly challenging year impacted by COVID-19, Girls on the Run NYC has found new ways to serve girls throughout the five boroughs. Our Fall and Spring programming continues, with adaptations to be safe and accessible for all girls. We hosted our first ever Winter Season in 2021, and our first in-person sessions this Summer Season of 2021, giving girls new opportunities to connect and grow. Throughout the challenges of this past year, Girls on the Run has continued our mission to serve girls, and has expanded to new ways of doing so. Your donation allows us to continue our work of making GOTR more accessible.
During the 2020 - 2021 school year, over 90% of girls received some financial assistance, with 74% of participants requiring full financial assistance to participate at no fee. We need your support to keep our program financially accessible to all NYC girls.
Your gift has proven impacts that last a lifetime; national studies show that Girls on the Run provides lasting growth in confidence, character, and competency for young girls. Your gift will impact a girl's life for the better - you can help her find friendship and community, learn important life lessons, and grow confidence.
Let’s join together to support the limitless potential of young girls and provide them the tools they need to thrive.
