The founder of Girls on the Run International and a globally recognized role model for positive change, Molly Barker motivates audiences to embrace their individual strengths, ask the hard questions of themselves, and realize their potential to change the world.

An accomplished triathlete, Molly encourages others to run—toward hope, passion, and self-discovery to solve problems and overcome adversity. With a background in social work, counseling, and teaching, she founded the nationwide nonprofit, Girls on the Run, in Charlotte, N.C. Since 1996, Girls on the Run has grown from one school to 200 plus cities across every state in the country and helped more than 2.25 million girls unleash their potential. As one girl in the program shared, “Girls on the Run taught me how to be the boss of my own brain.”

Molly shares life-changing lessons from her personal journey of overcoming addiction/self-discovery [whichever you think is appropriate] to start and grow the nation’s largest curriculum-based afterschool program. Authentic, candid, and relatable on stage, she leaves audiences with a deeper awareness of the world, themselves and how to creatively and effectively channel passions into innovative solutions.

Molly is the author of several books and has received numerous awards including the Point of Light Award presented by Presidents George Bush and Barack Obama, at a ceremony at the White House.
