Impact
Top Accomplishments: Girls on the Run of Greater Richmond completed it's first year of programing in December of 2013.
  1. Our inaugural season in September of 2013, allowed us to serve 25 girls in Grades 3-5 at Short Pump and Fox Elementary School. We maintained those sites and served an additional 25 girls in the Spring of 2014.
  2. Our program has been very well recieved by our inaugural sites and it is now an established extension of the schools' programing.
  3. Just one year later we are on track to serve 75 girls during our fall season at 5 sites: Short Pump, Fox, Linwood Holton, Mary Munford Elementary and Collegiate Schools.
  4. We have started networking within our community to strategize about expansion to underserved girls and families in the East End.
  5. Committed to a responsible and sustainable growth plan, GOTR GR will add new sites judiciously as council infrastructure can support the growth.

 

Goals for 2014: Support more girls in the Greater Richmond area, while building internal infrastructure to support the program for long term growth and stability.
  1. Receive corporate sponsorship to support program expansion to underserved areas and to support our current scholarship funds
  2. Recieve corporate sponsorship and or grants to support internal infrastructure of a paid Director
  3. Increase awareness about our council, mission and programs 
  4. Raise $10,000 during the Amazing Raise
  5. Expand our Board of Directors to both reflect and ensure a diversity of perspectives that will help to identify opportunities and risks for a young but healthy organization.
    diverse perspectives on the board can help identify the opportunities and the risks. - See more at: http://www.councilofnonprofits.org/resources/resources-topic/boards-and-governance/diversity-boards#sthash.gLOACJEK.dpuf

Needs Financial support will have the greatest impact on the growth of Girls on the Run of Greater Richmond.  We intend to strategically grow our organization by expanding to additional elementary school sites over the next two years, with a goal of serving 12 sites and 180 girls per season by 2015.  This growth requires community support in both monetary donations and volunteer support.  Visit www.gotrrichmond.org to find out more about volunteer opportunities with GOTR Richmond!
Background
Girls on the Run® is a 501(c)(3) organization focused on positive youth development through an interactive curriculum and running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls. Our core curriculum addresses many aspects of girls' development - their physical, emotional, mental and social well-being. Lessons provide girls with the tools to make positive decisions and to avoid risky adolescent behaviors.
 
We provide a safe environment where girls can express themselves, build confidence, and learn from each other. We believe it is critical to reach girls at an early age in order to teach them these important life lessons and to prevent at-risk behavior such as eating disorders, substance abuse, depression, obesity and adolescent pregnancies.
