Back to School with Girls Gotta Run

Only 16% of girls attend secondary school in Ethiopia.

Thanks to your support, the GGRF Athletic Scholars are changing this statistic and starting a new school year in Ethiopia this month. Here's how you can help ensure that the girls have everything they need to excel in school and on the track this year:
