Mission Statement

Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

Description

Girls on the Run International was established in 1996 in Charlotte, North Carolina by Molly Barker. What started with thirteen girls in one school has grown to over 200 councils in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. With the help of almost 100,000 volunteers, Girls on the Run served nearly 180,000 girls in 2015, including our millionth girl! Girls on the Run continues to grow and currently hosts more than 350 end-of-season 5K events across the United States, making the Girls on the Run 5K series the largest in the country. Girls on the Run has also expanded to include middle school girls through Heart & Sole, a program dedicated to the unique needs of adolescent girls.

Girls on the Run of Greater Susquehanna Valley was established in 2010. In our first season, 8 girls participated at 1 school. In 2016, we served nearly 800 girls, at 33 sites with almost 200 volunteer coaches. We are currently serving girls in seven counties, inlcuding Lycoming, Montour, Colombia, Northumberland, Snyder, Juniata and Union.
