Client Spotlight: Girls on the Run of Hamilton County

by | Dec 3, 2013

Transform Consulting Group is thrilled to be working with Girls on the Run of Hamilton County to provide strategic planning guidance, board development and fund development. Girls on the Run of Hamilton County is one of twelve organizations across the state chosen to receive a Capacity BuildingGirls on the run Coaching grant from the Indiana Youth Institute (IYI). Girls on the Run helps girls build leadership and social skills through sports.

“Girls on the Run of Hamilton County is honored to have been chosen to receive the Capacity Coaching Building Grant from the Indiana Youth Institute,” said Kelley Stokesbary, chair of the board of directors and council director for the organization. “It is our vision that every third to eighth grade girl in Hamilton County have the opportunity to participate in Girls on the Run,” Stokesbary added. “At Girls on the Run, we like to think of ourselves as ‘I Can University.’ All girls should know they can be themselves, can face any challenge and can change the world!”

Girls on the Run provides a character development curriculum for girls in 3rd through 8th grade that provides positive reinforcement and encouraging role models while creatively integrating running and exercise. Trained coaches lead a 12-week session with girls where each lesson combines running and walking games with various life skills; including healthy eating, leadership, setting goals, cooperation and other age-appropriate topics.

Girls on the Run® of Hamilton County, started in 2010, and is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run® International, founded in 1996, by Molly Barker, a visionary, Ironman triathlete. Today, there are more than 200 councils across the United States and Canada, with new locations added every year.

Similar to this work we’re doing for Girls on the Run, Transform Consulting Group can help organizations with board development, creating a fund development plan, and establishing outcomes and assessments. Contact Transform Consulting Group today and we’ll help you run the race.
