5K Sponsorship

The Girls on the Run 5K is the culminating event of our program; a defining accomplishment for thousands of girls.  It is a celebration of a 8-week journey towards more joyful, healthy, and confident lives and an important step in a lifetime of healthy habits for strong, confident young women.

The 5K is held specifically for Girls on the Run participants and their family members. Thousands across the region come together to complete this non-competitive 5K event alongside their volunteer coaches, families, and friends.
