Girls on the Run of Austin invites you to attend one or all of our special events. Please join us in supporting this life-changing program and make a difference in the life of a young girl.

GOTR 5k Color

The Girls on the Run Austin Spring 2017 5k will take place in conjunction with the Silicon Labs Austin Sunshine Run, thanks to the generosity of Silicon Labs and the Young Mens’ Business League.  If you are interested in volunteering as a running buddy to encourage our girls during the race on May 7th, please register here today!


The 2016 LUNAFEST event raised over $2,000 for Girls on the Run Austin and the Breast Cancer Fund, and we look forward to an even more successful event in 2017. Please plan to join us at the new Alamo Drafthouse Meuller on the evening of Wednesday, July 26, 2017, for this year’s screening and silent auction.

LUNAFEST is a traveling film festival of award-winning short films by, for and about women with stories of reflection, hope and humor. Each year, various organizations bring LUNAFESTs to their communities and raise funds for their local non-profits as well as the main beneficiary, Breast Cancer Fund to over 150 cities and screen in front of 25,000 people.

Girls on the Run of Austin brings LUNAFEST to Austin, Texas in partnership with Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, with 100% of the ticket proceeds benefitting GOTR and the Breast Cancer Research Fund.


These mini, pop-up events offer us an opportunity to go to local businesses and spread the word about this amazing program. We typically set up a table with materials and grow awareness, recruit volunteers and accept donations to sponsor girls’ participation in one of our after-school programs. If you are interested in hosting a Sponsor-a-Girl event at your location, please email
