On World Health Day, you can ensure even more girls get the chance to unleash their limitless potential. The Girls on the Run councils of the Greater Washington Area are partnering with the Catalogue for Philanthropy to host a one-day giving campaign. Our goal is to raise $15,000 Ė enough to offer financial aid to 90 local girls and give them the opportunity to learn the skills they need to be healthy, strong, and confident!

Girls on the Run is an empowerment program for girls in 3rd-8th gradeógiving each participant the skills and experiences she needs to navigate her world confidently and to unleash her limitless potential! We teach girls life skills through a curriculum of engaging lessons and fun running activities. At each seasonís conclusion, the girls complete a celebratory 5K run that gives them a lifelong memory of accomplishment. The result? Healthy, Confident girls who Can!

Together, Girls on the Run District of Columbia, Montgomery County, MD and Northern Virginia collectively impact over 11,000 girls each year, offering more than $500,000 annually in financial aid to girls in the Greater Washington area. By making a gift today, you will be helping even more girls unleash their limitless potential.
