Girls on the Run of South Central Wisconsin

At Girls on the Run we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-5th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.


The program fee is $160. Our sliding fee scale is based on annual family income. Annual Family Income and Fee for 10-Week Program Over $60,000 = $160 $40,001 - $60,000 = $120 $20,001 - $40,000 = $80 under $20,000 = $40
We believe in the limitless potential of every girl and focus on strengths and abilities rather than risks or challenges. Girls on the Run fosters an inclusive environment and offers the opportunity for all girls to participate, regardless of financial circumstances. The program fee is $160.
