How we help:
Community Giving-WICT Carolinas is committed to supporting the communities our member companies serve. The Giving Back Committee focuses on charities that help women and girls.
The WICT Carolinas Giving Back Committee is pleased to support Girls on the Run for 2018!
Girls on the Run inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
Girls on the Run (GOTR) was established in 1996 in Charlotte, North Carolina with the help of thirteen brave girls. Twenty-six girls came the next season, then seventy-five. In 2000, Girls on the Run International, a 501(c)3 organization, was born.
What started with one school has grown to 225 councils in 49 states and the District of Columbia. With the help of over 98,000 volunteers, Girls on the Run served over 179,000 girls in 2015, including its millionth girl! In the same year, Girls on the Run hosted 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, and launched a new middle school program, Heart & Sole, which is dedicated to the unique needs of adolescent girls.
