January 1st kicked off our Limitless Potential Campaign. Our goal is to raise $30,000 to make a lifelong impact on girls. We served close to 300 girls in 2016, and we want to ensure that more girls have access to this life transforming program. In 2017, our goal is to increase the number of girls served by 100. A gift of any amount can make a huge impact. Together, we can inspire girls to recognize their inner strength. Together, we can empower girls to make a positive difference in their communities- and the world. Together- we can make an immediate difference in the lives of girls we serve.
We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
Girls on the Run of the Big Bend is a 501(c)3 positive youth development program which combines an interactive curriculum and running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls. Our core curriculum addresses many aspects of girls’ development – their physical, emotional, mental and social well-being. Lessons help girls make positive decisions to avoid risky adolescent behaviors. At the end of each program the girls run a celebratory 5K to experience the exhilarating feeling of accomplishment. However, at Girls on the Run, the finish line is just the beginning, as our ultimate goal is to provide the girls with tools and resources that develop their ability to think critically - a skill that will serve them well for a lifetime.
