Donate your time to help give
girls a brighter future.
More than 85% of girls taking part in the program receive some sort of financial assistance to participate. In 2016, our team raised nearly $400,000 in scholarships, helping nearly 2,500 girls participate in the program. In 2017, we are on track to serve 12,000 girls across Chicagoland. Join the team that helps make it all happen!
Girls on the Run-Chicago is excited to be partnering with a number of fantastic races including the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K, and more to be announced soon!
