GOTRC is Celebrating 24 Years! Our Founding to Our Future

Girls on the Run-Chicago Our Founding to Our Future

Our Founding to Our Future 2023

Girls on the Run-Chicago's Finish Line Council is a passionate community of women leaders who have supported Girls on the Run-Chicago from our founding in 1999 to today. From the beginning, they have been deeply involved with our mission and work of supporting the social-emotional and physical health of girls through life skills lessons that creatively integrate running and physical activity. These lessons help girls navigate adolescence to become tomorrow’s leaders.
