Our mission is "to educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living." Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a prevention program that uses the power of running to help preteen girls in 3rd through 8th grade develop self-respect and value a healthy lifestyle. Our curricula address the development of the 'whole' girl - her physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual well-being.
GOTR of Austin is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community collaboration and is funded by registration fees, tax-deductible donations and grants. We rely entirely on the generosity and support of local individuals, businesses and organizations. Without the support of the greater Austin area, we would not exist. We thank you all!
GOTR of Austin is an affiliate of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of 160 locations across the United States and Canada.
GOTR of Austin is also now a part of Local Independent Charities of America, a federation of local nonprofit charitable organizations that are helping children and many others in communities.
