Our Largest Season is Off and Running!
Our Spring 2018 season is off to an amazing start and we could not be more excited to report that we have over 1,900 girls participating in our program this spring! That means that 1,900 girls will learn that they are worthy, capable, and in the driver's seat of their own life.
 
We would be remiss not to mention that we could not have accomplished this remarkable feat without the help of hundreds of volunteers. First off, a huge energy award to the more than 450 coaches who will be inspiring our girls this spring. We would be unable to run the program without these coaches generously volunteering their time and energy to empower girls in our community. Also, we are sending a big thank you to our site liaisons for supporting the program at their sites and helping recruit girls. You truly hit it out of the park and are helping us reach more girls than ever!
 
Moreover, we are grateful for our amazing sponsors and donors who have allowed us to provide over 60% of these girls scholarships to participate in our program. Thanks to their support, we were able to accept ALL girls who wished to participate, regardless of ability to pay.

Lastly, we thank YOU for your support. We recognize that ensuring girls realize their self-worth and limitless potential takes a village and we are certainly grateful for ours. We look forward to another amazing season of empowerment and growth!
 
Don't forget to Save the Date to watch these 1,900 remarkable girls cross the finish line of the QFC Girls on the Run 5K on May 20 th

To date, thanks to our partnership with Swedish Medical Center, we have been able to off over 400 girls full scholarships (that’s 26 teams!).
