Girls on the Run inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. At Girls on the Run we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls in 3rd-8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation 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 event.
- We have served over 11,000 girls since 2005.
- Girls' self-confidence begins to drop by age 9. 50% of girls ages 10-13 experience bullying and name calling and physical activity levels decline at age 10.
- We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
