About Us

Girls on the Run International is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Over 210 Councils in 50 states serve 200,000+ girls a year and engage close to 100,000 volunteers.


Founded in Charlotte in 1996, Girls on the Run International serves as the national headquarters of the organization responsible for developing and evaluating programming, providing training and support to its council network and marketing the organization while also serving as the local Charlotte area council responsible for delivering the program to over 3,500 girls each year in Mecklenburg and Cabarrus counties.


Girls on the Run believes that all girls and communities should have access to our programs. We strive to eliminate barriers to participation, to continue creating programming that engages all communities, to be intentional about staff and volunteer diversity and to promote a culture of inclusion across the organization.
