GOT REI High-Need Scholarships

Girls on the Run is an after-school program that uses the power of running to prepare 3rd-6th grade girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. Groups of 8-20 girls meet twice a week for 10 weeks. Volunteer coaches lead the lessons and incorporate training for a 5k run/walk event with a focused, experience-based curriculum that includes topics such as healthy eating, conflict resolution, making good choices, how to prevent and address bullying, and standing up for one’s self. Funding will provide full or partial scholarships in Iowa City, Coralville, North Liberty, Hills, Fairfield, and Cedar Rapids.
