 "There is a spark in every girl. That spark gives you confidence. Girls on the Run has helped me find that spark and I will help others find their spark, too. Because everyone has one." - 6th grade participant

Confidence fuels the idea, "she can." There are times we need to hear it and times we need to say it. Give the gift of confidence and change the world - one girl at a time.

Donate today and tell a girl she can!

 

Our Dream

Our dream is to support all girls throughout the Willamette Valley regardless of their family's socio-economic level.  This means we need your help to reach those who will benefit most from our program. Click the button above to make a contribution to Girls on the Run today.

Community support is critical to our success. Approximately 40% of our girls receive either 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.
