Girl Power Campaign - YOU CAN Help Us Raise $80,000

Girls on the Run is a 501(c)3 positive youth development program which combines an interactive curriculum with running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls. The core curriculum addresses many aspects of girls’ development - such as their physical, emotional, mental and social well-being. This empowerment helps young girls in so many ways at a critical point in their development. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. At the end of the 10-week program, GOTR participants have been found to have: higher self-esteem, improved eating habits, improved body image, and a positive attitude towards physical activity.

Your Support of Girls on the Run of Greater Milwaukee allows for moments like this:

"The 5k spectators start chanting . . . Brianna, Brianna, Brianna.  Brianna, the last GOTR participant coming toward the finish line of the 5k , who has the GOTR Wondergirls all around her, says excitedly, "How do they know my name?".  Her pace starts to increase, her smile gets bigger and all the Wondergirls around her continue to nudge her forward.  Brianna crosses that finish line and has inspired all those spectators chanting her name as well as had completed her goal of finishing a 5k.

We serve over 1000 girls yearly and we are growing!  Please consider making a donation to allow for further expansion of our programming and scholarship for girls in need of financial assistance.

Community support is critical to our success. Well over 50% of our girls are either on full or partial scholarship to participate in our program. Financial assistance from businesses and individuals ensures that all girls are able to participate in this transformational program regardless of their ability to pay the program fee. And, our 5K race sponsors help us offset the costs of our season-culminating event, giving each girl the opportunity to reach the finish line of the program.
