Fin-Aid - Shared

Financial Aid

If you are in need of financial assistance, please work your way through the registration process. We are using a new process. Before checkout, you will be asked if you need financial assistance, then you will be asked to provide your household income and the number of people in your household. Your price will be adjusted using a sliding scale and the adjusted price will appear at checkout. If you do not qualify for assistance through this process but still need help,  please complete this Scholarship Interest form first before moving forward. Once you have completed the form, do not continue registration until you hear back from us. Contact Susan Michel at 443-864-8593 or susan.michel@girlsontherun.org with any questions about financial assistance eligibility.

My girl isn't a big runner; is this program for her? OR My girl is already a skilled runner. Is this program for her?

Yes! We are much more than a running program, and every participant can benefit from the experience of building confidence through accomplishment while participating in our rich, curriculum-based, age-appropriate, interactive lessons. Expect lots of games, talking, laughing and processing in addition to running at each practice. And know that when we say run, we mean run, walk, skip, roll or push, just as long as you are moving foward!

What does the program fee include?

Though our cost per particpant is over $270, through generous donors we're able to offer the 10-week, 20-lesson program for $185. Your program registration fee includes all lesson materials, including GOTR curriculum, activity sheets, lap counters and more, a GOTR t-shirt, a bib entry into the season-ending 5K, a finisher's medal, a GOTR water bottle and a healthy snack at every practice.

We can't afford the program registration fee, but our child would love to participate. How does the scholarship program work?

Don't let cost stop you from participating! We are committed to making Girls on the Run accessible to all who want to particpate! Thanks to generous donors and community supporters, program scholarships are available to any family who needs it, and we can also provide appropriate running shoes and attire on a case by case basis. 

When does the 10-week season begin?

Practices will begin the week of September 18. The culminating event will be the 5K on Saturday, December 3 in Howard County, December 4 in Carroll and Cecil/Harford TBD. More information will be shared by the GOTR staff and by your girl's coaches once the season begins.

Do girls need to attend both days each week in order to register?

Yes! Since most of our teams fill up quickly, if your girl will be unable to attend all the sessions, please save room for a girl who can, and consider joining us in a future season when she can enjoy the entire program.

Is there a way for me to sponsor a participant for a season?

Yes! As a mission-driven 501(c)3, Girls on the Run relies on generous donors in order to provide more than $30,000 in program scholarships for families in need. Click here to sponsor a participant this season.
