Amanda Stevens: Teach Life Lessons Through Running



Funds raised through this project will go directly to six new Girls on the Run of Denver scholarship sites.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Many girls at our target schools do not have access to quality after school programming. Through our scholarship fund, Girls on the Run is able to offer a 10-week program that helps girls learn how to live a life where they feel confident, healthy, and proud to be who they are at no cost.

How will this project solve this problem?

Girls meet with trained Girls on the Run coaches twice a week for 10 weeks. The girls are led by coach mentors through a curriculum-based program that uniquely combines lessons with training for a local 5K event.

Potential Long Term Impact

Each year, Girls on the Run of Denver serves 900 – 1,000 girls in the greater- Denver area. Forty percent of our participants receive scholarships to the program through fundraising efforts by Girls on the Run of Denver.
