About Girls on the Run Hampton Roads

  • Girls on the Run was started in Hampton Roads in 2005 in two schools.  By the Spring of 2010, we had 17 sites, with 254 girls participating.
  • Today, in 2017, we have over 100 active sites serving about 2,000 girls this year. a record 70  in 10 school districts. WOW--that is tremendous growth!
  • Through grant funds and donations, we consistently offer scholarships to an average of over 75% of our girls.

The Girls on the Run Hampton Roads has an expansion plan to more girls in all school districts in our Council area.  We need critical funding support from the community to support steady growth, structured internal development, and generous financial assistance to children living in low income households.
