Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Studies have shown that by the age of 9, girls confidence levels begin to decline and continue to do so throughout her adolescence. Our program addresses this problem by providing a program intentionally developed for girls ages 8-13 that provides critical life lessons and strategies to improve her confidence, competence, character, caring and connection levels while simultaneously training for a 5K run. By pairing physical activity with confidence building activities, we help girls prepare for a world that requires them to be their bravest, strongest and most competent selves.

Girls on the Run of Southeastern Wisconsin

At Girls on the Run we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the eight-week program, girls in 3rd-8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.

Girls on the Run Southeastern Wisconsin serves Milwaukee, Kenosha, Ozaukee, Racine, Walworth, Washington and Waukesha counties.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We envision a world where every girl knows her strength and is prepared to fearlessly unleash her limitless potential. We want girls to be strong, brave, creative and caring. We also want to inspire donors and funders to join us in this important mission by providing the funds for scholarships so that we can make our program accessible to all girls regardless of financial capability.

IDEA in Action
A recent external review of inclusion, diversity, equity and access (IDEA) within the Girls on the Run programming found that participants, families, and coaches overwhelmingly felt that Girls on the Run was inclusive, promoted diversity, and was accessible and equitable. The study also showed that:

Nearly 100% of participants agreed that they feel safe at Girls on the Run and that their coaches care about them. 97% of participants agree that they can be themselves at Girls on the Run and feel included in all GOTR activities they wish to participate in. 100% of parents/guardians who reported that their child requires accommodations to fully participate agree that their child could participate equally to their peers.
97% of parent/guardians believe that the Girls on the Run coaches care about their child and who they are as a person.
