Sponsor GOTR NOVA!
The Mission: inspiring girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a curriculum which integrates the power of running
The Method: an active twice a week, 10-week program to develop the whole girl - physical, mental, emotional and social
The Means: your support helps fund and expand our program
Sponsor a specific school - $3,500 per school for one season.
Becoming a Girls on the Run Front Runner Sponsor is a unique opportunity to become a community champion and directly impact a specific school community. This level of sponsorship fully funds and supports a team of up to 20 girls at a selected school in Northern Virginia. By bringing together Front Runner Sponsors with school communities whose families are in financial need and might not otherwise be able to afford Girls on the Run, we move one step closer to fulfilling our goal of providing every girl who would like to participate in Girls on the Run with the opportunity to do so.
We are grateful for the support of UnitedHealthcare, our first ever Front Runner Sponsor. UnitedHealthcare funded 10 schools in Northern VA in 2012.
Impact a Community and Become a City/County Champion
Becoming a Girls on the Run City/County Champion is a unique opportunity to directly impact schools and girls in a specific Northern VA community. This level of sponsorship fully funds and supports all girls in a particular county or independent city who need financial assistance to participate in Girls on the Run. The City/County Champion sponsorship is an opportunity for a business, organization, or individual to be recognized not only for their generous support of Girls on the Run, but also for their dedication to a specific county of our region.
Sponsorship amounts vary based on the number of girls served per city or county - please see our Fact Sheet for details.
Sponsor our 5K Races: Be a Part of a Community Movement for Healthier Living.
The GOTR NOVA 5K is the capstone achievement for girls participating in our program and gives them a tangible sense of healthy goal-setting and success. The girls train all season to complete a 5K (3.1-mile) race, and the GOTR NOVA 5K is where they cross the finish line! Taking place twice a year in Spring and Fall, the GOTR NOVA 5K events each boast about 6,000 runners plus another 2-3,000 spectators, including the girls, their families, coaches, friends, and community leaders and local elected officials, all who are coming together to support healthy lifestyles in Northern VA.
Sponsorship of the GOTR NOVA 5K's could include branding and visibility to these thousands of Northern Virginians who believe in healthier communities and a stronger sense of wellness for their families.
