The Starting Line - A Young Professionals Network Supporting Girls on the Run of Middle Tennessee

The Starting Line is a dynamic group of young professionals who share a passion for youth development and furthering the mission of Girls on the Run. This dedicated group of young professionals supports Girls on the Run in three key areas:


The Starting Line is the host of the Sneaker Soiree, our annual fall fundraiser! They help plan and organize the event, including soliciting for auction items and sponsorships, planning the theme, décor and activities for the evening, and helping to sell tickets and tables by publicizing the event to their social circle and inviting their friends! 


The Starting Line represents Girls on the Run at events in the community, distributing information, recruiting new volunteers and raising awareness about the GOTR mission! All members are expected to volunteer at least once per year.   


Members advocate by spreading the word about GOTR to their friends, family, workplace and on social media! 

Included in membership are exclusive member only invitations to unique social opportunities. Some of our most popular events are fitness classes or group runs followed by happy hour!

There will be many opportunities to network and get to know your fellow Starting Line members.
