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.
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.
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.
