Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. They inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. GOTR DC serves over 2,100 girls a year across all eight wards of DC and in Prince George's County at over 145 locations. 17,000 girls' lives changed since 2006!
Beginning in 2019, Capital City Cooperative will participate in quarterly volunteer opportunities in support of GOTR's signature Spring and Fall 5K program(s). For each 5K, the Cooperative will operate an area of the race whether Bag Check, Pre-Race Festivities, or the On-Course Water Stations. Cooperative members also have the opportunity to lace up and run alongside one the girls as a Buddy Runner, which is a heartwarming experience.
