Support Girls on the Run
By participating in the Girls on the Run 5k you will help empower girls! 100% of the race proceeds go directly to Girls on the Run serving Maricopa and Pinal Counties whose mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Your support will help change the lives of local girls – empowering them with the tools and confidence they need to grow up to be strong, healthy, confident women who positively impact our community.
If she can see it she can be it.
The Inspiration Station is a very special part of our event expo that shows girls that they truly have limitless potential, that they can dream big and that if they work hard they can reach their goals. To do this, we invite a small group of extraordinary women in a variety of careers to spend time chatting with the girls and to serve as an example of girls who chased big dreams and succeeded. The station will be set up as a meet and greet area where girls and event participants can walk through and ask questions as desired one-on-one or in small groups and participate in other fun activities.
Become a *Sparkle Runner*!
If you would like to run with the girls, this is for you! Be a moving course marshal and provide gentle encouragement and support to all our girls along the run. A Sparkle Runner is an adult female who runs the 5k and cheers on all of our girls as they head towards the finish line! Some Sparkle Runners may be paired with an individual girl to run the whole race with, while others will be asked to cheer on all the girls along the course and others asked to help to serve as sweep. You may come across a girl who got separated from her Running Buddy, is too fast for her Running Buddy, or just needs some extra encouragement! To become a Sparkle Runner, please register for our upcoming end of season 5k and select “Sparkle Runner” as your event category.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Sparkle Runners will be asked to complete a background check in order to serve in this role.
