Black History Month Girls on the Run-Chicago 2023

Black History Month 2023

At Girls on the Run, we know we’re stronger together. When we work with other organizations and bring their voices to the table, we can better serve our girls—we call it the Girls on the Run Relay: we all play a part in getting girls across the finish line. That’s why this Black History Month, we’re passing the relay baton to Chicago-based organizations led by Black women who each work to lift up women and girls. All month, we’ll feature their amazing work and words, and resources for you and your kids to learn more. #BHMGirlsOnTheRunRelay

Follow along with us all through June!
