Girls on the Run helps girls take charge of their lives and define the future on their terms. We believe in a world where EVERY girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. We are the voice to tell her she can!
We start with helping the girls get a better understanding of who they are and what's important to them. We look at the importance of healthy habits and healthy relationships. We explore how girls can positively connect with and shape their community. We believe that life-changing experiences can be fun too—for everyone—the girls, coaches, families and other volunteers.
We creatively incorporate running and other physical movement into our curriculum. Our physical activity games help to inspire and motivate girls throughout the 10-week program, encourage lifelong love of good health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. At each season's conclusion, the girls and their running buddies complete a celebratory 5K running event. This culminating event is the moment when the girls realize that even the seemingly impossible IS possible.
