Girls on the Run of the Bay Area

Please join MLS in support of the Girls on the Run of the Bay Area Move-Balance-Grow fundraiser on April 23rd, 2015 at Strava in San Francisco. The money raised from your donation will go directly toward funding new programs in the Bay Area, which provide girls with the skills and confidence to boldly pursue their dreams.

Girls who participate in physical activity, such as running, develop more than strong, healthy bodies. Research shows they also have better self-esteem, less depression and are happier with their bodies than their sedentary peers. In addition, female athletes are less likely to smoke, take drugs or engage in early sexual activity.

Girls on the Run — GOTR — is an international nonprofit organization with more than 200 chapters, or independent councils, dedicated to helping girls ages 8–13 reap the benefits of running. Based in San Francisco, the Bay Area chapter of GOTR was started in 2002. Along with San Francisco, it serves the counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin and San Mateo.
