Girls on the Run of NOVA 

Girls on the Run teaches girls the skills they need to be strong, confident, and healthy women. Did you know that girls’ self-confidence plummets when they reach puberty? In fact, only 19% of girls have a positive association with the phrase “like a girl.” But we know that confident girls can do anything. Over the course of the Girls on the Run proven 10-week curriculum – delivered before or after school at sites throughout Northern Virginia – girls are inspired to realize their unique potential, tap into their individual strengths, and unleash their confidence. At Girls on the Run of Northern Virginia, we envision a world where each girl knows she has the ultimate power to be her best.

Girls on the Run of Northern Virginia is proud to celebrate 15 years of building strong girls. Thanks to the support of our volunteer coaches, parents, school leaders, and donors, GOTR NOVA has impacted more than 50,000 girls throughout Northern Virginia. Together, we are 50K Strong.  Girls on the Run ignites a belief in each participant that she can achieve anything. We help girls increase confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to themselves and to others with compassion, create positive connections with peers and adults, and make meaningful contributions to their community.

Sunrise Orthodontics

Girls on the Run of NOVA is thrilled to have the support of Sunrise Orthodontics and of Dr. Liliana Calkins, DDS.

Sunrise is supporting GOTR NOVA in a truly significant way as the City Champion for all of Reston. Their donation is underwriting all of the financial aid offered to families throughout Reston, helping to ensure that no girl is turned away due to financial difficulty. While we know all girls can benefit from GOTR NOVA, Dr. Calkins is helping to ensure that the girls who are least likely to have access to after school programing are able to participate in the Girls on the Run.
