Heart of Missouri Girls on the Run

What We Do

Girls on the Run is a youth empowerment program for girls in grades 3-8. Over the course of 10-weeks, girls engage in lessons to build confidence, courage, and connection. They also learn to set and achieve goals by training for and completing a 5k.

Why We're Great

We empower girls to believe in themselves and to support one another. "Before Girls on the Run I had 0% confidence. Now I have 100,000% confidence! I feel like a queen, that's how much confidence I have!" - Sophie

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

About 43% of the girls we serve would not be able to participate without your help. Girls like Kayla, who says, "Girls on the Run teaches me how to live my best life!" Your gift makes Kayla's best life possible! Thank you!
