Raise money for Girls on the Run DFW


Our Story

Girls on the Run of the DFW Metroplex is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International. In 2004, GOTRDFW began in Garland, TX with a single class of nine girls. At the time, there were no existing programs in the Dallas area that addressed the issue of positive self-image while incorporating physical activity. As a result, GOTRDFW rapidly expanded in the greater DFW area. In 2005, GOTRDFW was given nonprofit status as a 501(c)(3). Since its establishment, GOTRDFW has served over 8,500 girls in the Metroplex at schools, recreation, community centers and other settings. The program is noncompetitive, and any girl can participate regardless of athletic ability, and no girl is turned away for economic reasons
