Girls on the Run never turns away a girl solely because of an inability to pay. Proceeds from these fundraisers provide full and partial scholarships for those participants whose families are financially challenged. As GOTR celebrates 10 years of successful programming, they hope to impact the lives of more than 100 local girls.
