I first learned about Girls on the Run from a coworker, she was telling us at lunch how much her daughter enjoyed it. I checked out the website and knew this was something I had to get involved in. I have coached and served on the board. I have grown so much as a person since I began with this program. I have made some lifetime friends and connections. This is such a great organization that helps coaches, community members and the girls come together, and it’s for people of all shapes, sizes, and nationalities.
Girls on the Run International and Say It Forward are committed to the empowerment of girls everywhere. We believe that every girl has an important story to share – a story of determination and perseverance, a story that can inspire others to overcome the self-limiting beliefs that keep them from reaching their fullest potential. We are also committed to empowering the women who invest their time and energy in these girls.
We invite you to share your story at Say It Forward and to keep in touch with us via Twitter and Facebook — Girls on the Run International Facebook and Twitter. All stories written by girls are shared with the permission of a parent or guardian. Girls’ first names only are posted with their stories.
