GIRLS ON THE RUN
Gamma Phi Beta’s international philanthropy is Girls on the Run. This organization helps young girls build self-confidence and independence through a 24-week program that helps them prepare for a 5k. The Beta Upsilon Chapter has the opportunity to get involved with this organization through our local Girls on the Run chapter, Girls on the Run Flint Hills. Our members volunteer each semester to help facilitate the 5k, coach participants leading up to the 5k, or even run alongside the girls in the 5k. Having a philanthropy to support at a national and local level is something we could not be more grateful for. We are able to work alongside young girls in the Manhattan community and gain hands on experience while putting our philanthropic efforts back into bettering our own community.The funds raised from our annual philanthropy events mentioned on the philanthropy page directly support Girls on the Run!
