2018 has been a year of growth.
We’re seen a growth in the number of girls ready to lace up and run, parents and sparkle runners holding their hands across the finish line, volunteers going above and beyond at 6 am, coaches lending their skills and time - and we have seen the profound personal growth of every girl we serve.
Over 880 girls received program scholarships, making it possible for them to run, learn, and grow!
We trained and certified over 150 community coaches this year!
These volunteers went above and beyond, helping their team reach the finish line while providing mentorship, support, and care all season long!
Over 450 volunteers joined on board to run, pack materials, sub-coach, decorate popsicle sticks as lap counters, deliver gear to the 5k, hand out water to runners, and more - every piece that makes a nonprofit run!
Over 170 sparkle runners shone, leading by example and celebrating girls as they ran their 5k and accomplished something incredible!
Girls on the Run NYC held over 20 events, including our February Fitness Series, our SoleMates breakfast, Chelsey Korus yoga class, Terez rooftop series, NYC Marathon cheer station, our annual Sneaker Soirée, and much, much more!
Girls led over 80 community impact projects - giving back to their community through girl-led animal shelter drives, cards for homeless populations, gift bags for teachers, and more!
Over 1,350 girls learned that they are strong, valued, and capable. Our program shows that 97% of girls grow in confidence, character, and leadership with Girls on the Run NYC - with impacts that grow year over year.
Each one of these numbers represents a girl whose life was changed because of radical generosity and the belief that investing in girls matters.
It’s been an inspirational year - and you can help make 2019 just as powerful with your end of year gift to Girls on the Run NYC.
