|Girls on the Run serving Maricopa and Pinal Counties is a life-changing, non-profit prevention program that inspires girls in 3rd through 8th grade to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
We use exercise, positive reinforcement, and encouraging role models to help girls discover the confidence they need in those critical pre-teen years and beyond. While covering topics that all girls face, participants learn how to celebrate being their unique and real selves, how to be part of a team and how to positively contribute to their community. Our hope is that every girl believes and can say, "I belong just the way I am."
As demand for our program continues to increase, so do our funding needs. Our philosophy is to never turn a girl away that wants to participate in our program but cannot afford it. Thus, our scholarship program is critical to our ability to carry out the Girls on the Run mission. We distributed more than $85,000 in scholarships last year and the demand for our services in high-risk, low income communities continues to grow.
We need your help to empower these girls and families! You tax deductible gift helps us provide programming to every interested girl - giving the leaders of tomorrow the skills they need today.
Thank you in advance for your support.
