About this project

GOTR Council: Girls on the Run New Jersey East

Project Created on: 09/30/2016

Project Type: SoleMates

I've been involved with Girls on the Run for the past 7 years as a volunteer, coach, employee, and now as the parent of my own girl on the run. This season, as I coach girls at our local elementary school, I get to see first-hand how this program impacts our girls and our school community. I'm grateful for the work of Girls on the Run and want all girls, regardless of financial circumstances, to have the opportunity to do the program. Your donation provides financial assistance to families who are unable to cover the full program fee, allowing more girls to participate in GOTR. Your donation is an investment in a young girl. Thanks for making a difference!


Girls on the Run inspires girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running. During our ten-week spring and fall seasons, volunteer coaches meet with girls twice per week to teach life skills using physical activity to reinforce lesson topics. Girls are empowered as they learn to value themselves, strengthen relationships and teamwork, and understand how they impact our world. The program culminates with the girls completing a community 5K. Our local council covers Essex, Morris, Union, Mercer, and Burlington Counties in NJ.
