Who We Are

501(C)3 Non-Profit

Girls on the Run® is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a mission to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. We are a physical activity-based positive youth development program (PA-PYD) designed to develop and enhance girls’ social, psychological and physical competencies to successfully navigate life experiences.


Girls on the Run International provides critical support to enable over 200 councils to host the program in their local communities in the U.S. and Canada. Individual councils operate as their own 501(c)3 non-profit organizations or are hosted as a program at affiliate organizations.
