    Why should I sign her up?


    “This program builds girls up, it empowers them, encourages them, and best of all shows them what amazing human beings they already are.” –Coach Nora

    • Over the course of the 10-week program, trained coaches lead girls in grades 3-8 in lessons to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one-of-a-kind.
    • Your girl learns to set goals, resolve conflict, help others, manage emotions and make intentional decisions to boost their well-being and confidence
    • Girls don't need to be runners or even like running. Teams include girls of all physical abilities and fitness levels.
    • Girls on the Run has had proven, long-term positive pact on the lives of girls across the Triangle for 18 years, setting it apart from other youth development programs. 

    How much does it cost?

    Girls on the Run is a nonprofit, and charges a $205 program fee to partially cover the cost of our curricula and accompanying coach and parent guides, t-shirts and water bottles for the girls and volunteer coaches, celebratory 5k registration, and materials used during the lessons. That’s only $10.25 per session for your girl.

     

    We’re committed to offering the program to all girls regardless of their ability to pay. A limited number of scholarships are available based on financial need. Please contact your GOTR Site Coordinator, Natalie Castro-Miller, at ncastromiller@wcpss.net with questions regarding financial assistance.
