Our mission at Girls on the Run is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. We embolden girls in 3rd through 8th grade to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind as they are facing social pressures and conflicting messages about how they should act and who they should be. Our trained volunteer coaches facilitate a ten-week program, helping the girls develop essential skills so they can understand themselves and their place in the world, all while establishing a passion for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K. We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
