Girls On The Run Atlanta

Girls on the Run of Atlanta was founded in 2000 and began with three teams and 30 girls. Today, we have more than 3,000 participants a year across four counties of metro Atlanta and have served 30,000 girls in the last 20 years!


What started with thirteen girls in one school in 1996 has grown to over 2 million girls transformed nationwide and counting. With the help of over 100,000 volunteers, we empower more than 200,000 girls annually. The only program of its kind, we focus on the important connection between mind and body. Our research-based lessons and accessible physical activity instill confidence and nurture care and compassion in every girl.


At Girls on the Run, our core values guide our way and we stand firm in our long-standing commitment to building a world where every person can know and activate their limitless potential. We value the dignity and humanity of all people and are dedicated to being an inclusive, diverse, equitable and accessible (IDEA) organization. Learn more about our commitment.
