What You'll Get

With running finally legalized by Chicago, many are tapping into the activity's potential for self-growth and personal fitness.

Girls on the Run Chicago (GOTRC) is one such group that's discovered the power of the run. The organization offers a 12-week, afterschool, 5k training program for eight- to 13-year-old girls from the Chicagoland area. Participating in the program helps these girls develop a stronger sense of identity, a greater acceptance of themselves, a healthier body image, and an understanding of what it means to be part of a team.

The program culminates with the Girls on the Run Chicago 5k, where the girls will run, walk, skip, and sprint their way toward a happier and healthier lifestyle, ready to positively change the world with the support of each other and GOTRC's mentors.

Join G-Team and help fund at least one young girl from a low-income community's participation in the 12-week GOTRC training program. For every additional $250 raised, another girl will be able to become a Girl on the Run. Three giving levels are available for G-Team donors: $5, $10, or $25

Donors who give $25 or more will receive free admission to the New Balance Girls on the Run 5k presented by the Chicago Fire on Nov. 13 (a $35 value), allowing them to trot along with members of Girls on the Run Chicago.
