This season, each GOTR Girl and GOTR Coach will be given the opportunity to participate in our annual Run for a Reason fundraiser. Girls ask family and friends to sponsor them for their end-of-season 5K run with a donation that helps more girls participate in Girls on the Run (GOTR) programs across Essex, Union, Morris, Mercer and Burlington counties. This fundraiser will help support the GOTR scholarship program and will help make it possible to keep fees as low as possible at all sites.
In their GOTR lessons, the girls learn about the importance of being part of a community and how we can all work together to make a difference. The Run for a Reason fundraiser is one way to assist other girls in our area by helping them participate in Girls on the Run.

We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
Girls on the Run® New Jersey East is a 501(c)3 positive youth development program which combines an interactive curriculum and running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls. Our core curriculum addresses many aspects of girls’ development – their physical, emotional, mental and social well-being. Lessons help girls make positive decisions to avoid risky adolescent behaviors. At the end of each program, the girls run a celebratory 5K to experience the exhilarating feeling of accomplishment. However, at Girls on the Run, the finish line is just the beginning, as our ultimate goal is to provide the girls with tools and resources that develop their ability to think critically - a skill that will serve them well for a lifetime.
Girls on the Run NJ East is growing by leaps and bounds! In the past year alone, we have experienced amazing growth in the number of girls we serve. Our goal is to continue this kind of growth until we can reach as many girls in our area as possible. We invite you to join us by helping us financially to expand to more schools and offer scholarships to girls so that "Every Girl Can Run!".
