Make an investment in the future of WNC by becoming a partner!

Girls on the Run of WNC seeks Program Sponsors to support our physical activity-based positive youth development program for 3rd-8th grade girls. For 15 years, we have empowered over 12,000 girls in 14 counties with the resources, confidence, and community and peer support to make healthier decisions and boldly pursue their dreams. Help us continue our great work and brighten the future of WNC!

The Impact of Your Investment:

Our program is offered to all girls, regardless of income or ability, and we strive to provide them with well-trained coaches, all the materials needed to deliver the curriculum, t-shirts and water bottles, and a wonderful GOTR 5k experience.  Of the 1,131 girls we served in 2017, 58% would not have had the opportunity to experience the joy of our program without scholarship support, which totaled $88,025 subsidized. We need your support to maintain our promise to never turn a girl away for inability to pay.
