We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
The 10-week Girls on the Run after-school program is designed to inspire girls of all abilities to recognize and embrace their inner strength. Lessons emphasize the important connection between physical and emotional health. At the end of the program, girls participate in a 5K, which provides a tangible sense of accomplishment, setting a confident and goal-oriented mindset into motion.
Meeting twice a week in small teams, trained volunteer coaches inspire girls to build confidence and other important life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and physical activity. The research-based curriculum includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork, and recognizing how they can shape the world at large.
