Girls on the Run is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a
world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free
to boldly pursue her dreams.
Girls on the Run Quad Cities is an independent council of Girls on the Run International. Girls on the Run Quad Cities was established in 2016 by a dedicated and enthusiastic group of women to serve Rock Island and Scott counties. We are embarking on our 2nd season this Spring and cannot wait to have a positive impact on local youth!
Girls on the Run International was established in 1996 in Charlotte, North Carolina by Molly Barker.
What started with thirteen girls in one school has grown to over 200 councils in all 50 states and
the District of Columbia. With the help of almost 100,000 volunteers, Girls on the Run served nearly
180,000 girls in 2015, including our millionth girl! Girls on the Run continues to grow and currently
hosts more than 350 end-of-season 5K events across the United States, making the Girls on the Run 5K
series the largest in the country. Girls on the Run has also expanded to include middle school girls
through Heart & Sole, a program dedicated to the unique needs of adolescent girls.
