  • Site application deadlines:

Once the application has been preliminarily approved, Girls on the Run Heart of Kansas seeks to meet with the site liaison, other coaches and ideally a school administrator, at the location to review the space and to answer any questions about the program or at least have a conference call.

Note that GOTR-Heart of Kansas is rapidly expanding and doing our best to accommodate as many new site requests as possible. We are somewhat limited by funding and staff capacity, therefore we can’t guarantee a site will be able to start simply because they completed an application. Please be aware that starting and maintaining a Girls on the Run site is a serious commitment for volunteers and a time intensive endeavor.

Please direct any questions you may have to Kari Scheer at (316) 749-8090 or
