GOTR-Nebraska kicks off its 10th year of programming this week, and we’d like to give a shout-out to a few of the many folks who have helped us prepare to serve some 1,600 girls this spring:
* The 230+ FABULOUS women who have volunteered to coach. Thank you for completing our many requirements and attending training. Coaches are the heart and soul of Girls on the Run and Girls on Track and you all ROCK for helping girls put their best foot forward!
* The Viking Foundation of Lincoln and the Junior League of Lincoln. Thank you for the generous support to underwrite programming at Title 1 schools this spring!
* The Gamma Phi Beta sorority at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. These young women have been FABULOUS! They’ve graciously shared their time to help sort season supplies and are coaching at sites across the city. THANK YOU!!!!
* Eyecare Specialities. Thank you for the HUGE donation of office furniture to outfit GOTR-Nebraska’s headquarters at 4600 Valley Road in Lincoln. We’d all be sitting on the floor without your generosity.
* Fremont First United Methodist Church Youth Groups. Thanks for road-tripping to Lincoln on Martin Luther King Day to help us assemble coach curriculum kits for the season.
GOTR-Nebraska is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that relies on an army of volunteers and financial and in-kind donations to operate. THANKS to EVERYONE who helps support our mission!

Even small donations of $5 or $10 add up to make a big difference. Click the “Donate” button on the left to contribute today!

Gamma Phi Beta Sorority has selected Girls on the Run as its new philanthropic initiative in 2012, as it aims to “build resiliency in girls.” As a national nonprofit partner, Gamma Phi Beta sorority provides support to the Girls on the Run International headquarters while engaging Gamma Phi Beta’s extensive and passionate membership in local Girls on the Run programs.
Girls on the Run was featured as part of an NBC Nightly News series called “Making a Difference.” Click here to view the piece and learn more about the program.
