Girls on the Run of Bexar County

The Bexar County council began in 2010 when a group of women with a passion for running and an even bigger passion for empowering girls came together with a mission to bring Girls on the Run to San Antonio. For their first season, Spring 2011 at Hawthorne Academy, they hoped to attract 8 girls to help them begin. They were happily overwhelmed with 36 young women. During the 2017-2018 academic year, they served 750 girls across Bexar, Comal, and Kendall counties! They anticipate serving 750+ girls in 2018-2019.

Origin Story:

Girls on the Run International was established in 1996 in Charlotte, North Carolina by Molly Barker. What started with thirteen girls in one school has grown to over 200 councils in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. With the help of almost 100,000 volunteers, Girls on the Run served nearly 180,000 girls in 2015, including our millionth girl! Girls on the Run continues to grow and currently hosts 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. Girls on the Run has also expanded to include middle school girls through Heart & Sole, a program dedicated to the unique needs of adolescent girls.
