Girls on the Run is a 501(c)3 physical activity-based positive youth development program dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. Girls learn their worth comes from within, that healthy relationships matter and that they can be a force for good in their community through a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running.
Meeting twice a week for 90 minutes in small teams, we teach girls life skills through engaging lessons and fun movement activities. The curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run coaches and helps each girl understand and celebrate herself and realize her power to change the world.
During the program, each team creates and executes a local community service project to demonstrate the unimaginable strength that comes from helping others. Finally, at each season’s conclusion, the girls and their running buddies complete a celebratory 5k running event that gives the girls a tangible sense of achievement
and a framework for setting and achieving life goals.
