Far too many girls in Stark County and Wayne County will never know how powerful and important they truly are because they believe that they are not worth believing in.
You can change that.
You, and sponsors and donors just like you, are the reason that Girls on the Run of Stark County has been able to provide 7 seasons of our empowering programs to 3rd through 8th grade girls here in Stark County, changing the lives more than 1,500 girls.
Unfortunately, not every girl can afford the full cost of the program. In fact in 2016, 369 of the 725 girls we served required financial aid.
To these girls, your name means someone they may not even know believes in them and their big dreams—no matter how impossible these dreams might seem.
We cannot continue our mission of inspiring joy, health, and confidence without you.
Your sponsorship helps girls develop and improve competence, feel confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care and compassion, create positive connections with peers and adults, and make a meaningful contribution to community and society. In just 10 weeks!
As a sponsor, you will be the superhero that stands behind nearly 900 girls this fall and spring and says, “We believe in you and your dreams!”
Every sponsorship amount makes incredible things happen for our Girls on the Run and Heart & Sole participants:
Your $250 sponsorship covers the cost of scholarships for 2 underserved girls who would otherwise not be able to participate.
Your $500 sponsorship covers the cost of 10 weeks of healthy snacks for 5 Girls on the Run or Heart & Sole teams.
Your $750 sponsorship covers the cost of medals, water bottles, & 5k registration for an entire team— letting them know that you support them and want to see them succeed.
Without your sponsorship, we simply cannot provide the scholarships needed to the many girls who will apply to be a part of this program and our largest season to date.
Of course, each level of sponsorship includes benefits to your group or business. See what our 2017 sponsorship packages have to offer your business here!
This year we will be hosting 4 5ks! We'll have a spring and fall 5k in both Stark & Wayne Counties!

“The girls in the program need to hear what Girls on the Run tells them, because it’s okay not to be perfect. Nobody’s perfect. And that’s okay. Without it, I wouldn’t be where I am. It gave me the confidence I needed to make better friends and to make better choices.”
