GIRLS ON THE RUN- DSM

The Des Moines Women's Half Marathon is proud to partner with Girls On The Run of Polk County for our 2017 event.

Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based, positive youth development program for girls in third through eighth grade. We teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. Each season, the program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment, while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. 

You can support GOTR of greater Des Moines during the registration process or by giving them some high fives during packet pick up, at aid stations on course, or as they celebrate with you at the finish line.
