Girls on the Run - DC (GOTR-DC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to changing girls' lives.
We offer a proven, character development after-school program to equip pre-teen girls (grades 3 - 8) in all eight wards of Washington, DC, with skills to develop confidence and form habits that prepare them for a lifetime of healthy living. 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 10 week 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 for a lifetime.
14,000+ GIRLS IN DC
Girls on the Run - DC celebrates each girl and encourages her to become her best self! Since our founding in 2006, we have served over 14,000 girls across all 8 wards and want to ensure that Girls on the Run is accessible to ALL girls in DC. We need your help to give girls in DC the chance to participate who otherwise wouldn't be able to. By making a gift today, you will make a difference in their lives.
