What an Amazing Year!

Posted 6/23/2016 | GOTR

As our 2015-2016 program year draws to a close, we are grateful to everyone who helped make this year such a big success! Thanks to your support, we served 569 girls in Fall 2015 and 584 girls in Spring 2016! We added new schools in Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Coralville, Riverside, North Linn, and Williamsburg. We introduced Heart & Sole, the new GOTR middle-school program. We had hundreds of community members give their time and talents as coaches, Running Buddies and 5k volunteers. And we provided full or partial scholarships to more than half of our participants, inspiring all girls to be joyful, healthy and confident!
Our goal this year was to raise $6,000 from individuals like you for scholarships so that more girls can experience the power of Girls on the Run, regardless of their families’ ability to pay. We’re about $1,500 short of that goal. Please make a tax-deductible donation to Girls on the Run of Eastern Iowa before June 30 and help put us over the top! Your generosity will help more girls in your community activate their limitless potential and boldly pursue their dreams.

With gratitude,
