Join Friends of GOTRGH

We are a group of passionate, dedicated professionals helping to promote Girls on the Run Greater Houston. We may not have the time to be a team coach, but we can certainly help broaden the awareness of this empowering program through volunteering, fundraising and bringing great people together at our social events.

More than 65% of girls participating in GOTR receive some financial assistance.  We help significantly in closing the funding gap the organization starts with each season with our fun social events.

The cost of membership is a tax-deductible donation of $50 per individual or $75 per couple.

  • Access to flexible and exclusive volunteer opportunities
  • Opportunity to attend team practices and run alongside the girls
