Educating and preparing girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living is PRICELESS! However, there are real costs associated with operating a non-profit organization and delivering quality programming.

Girls on the Run is open to all girls at program sites in Northeast Kansas, regardless of a family’s ability to pay. The sliding fee scale below is based on annual family income. Online registration allows you to select and pay the rate that corresponds with your annual family income.

The GOTR program fee is $150. Registration fees help us fulfill our commitment to provide every girl with an outstanding experience. Financial assistance is available to qualifying families unable to pay the full fee. We ask for your commitment to providing accurate information about your family’s financial status. Family income data will be collected for all scholarship applicants and income verification may be requested. This information will be collected during the online registration process.

In 2016, Girls on the Run of Northeast Kansas provided over $34,000 in financial support to over 400 families.
