This week, I was able to sit down with Selena and Paige from Girls On The Run! Girls on the Run-Charleston was founded by a team of local women in the summer of 2015. In 2016, they had their first GOTR season with 30 girls and now five years later they have served 1630 girls in Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester counties.

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, they empower more than 200,000 girls annually. The only program of its kind, they focus on the important connection between mind and body. They research-based lessons and accessible physical activity instill confidence and nurture care and compassion in every girl.
