Girls on the Run
Who Run the World? GIRLS
Girls on the Run is an organization dedicated to building confidence and instilling strong values in girls between the ages of 8 and 13. With chapters located across the country, Girls on the Run offers after school activities, classes, and running programs that seek to teach girls about body-image, friendships, and much more, all while preparing them to run in a 5k. .
Throughout the year, Gamma Phi Beta raises money to be donated to Girls on the Run. Additionally, our sisters show their support by excitedly cheering on runners at the November 5k. We often also have sisters who choose to run in the race or serve as coaches. We also have many currents members who participated in the program as young girls.
A National Commitment
Gamma Phi Beta is the proud exclusive National Panhellenic Conference National Sponsor of Girls on the Run International, a nonprofit organization that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running.
