Five_Girls_At_5K

Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

Girls on the Run is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of over 200 councils across the United States and Canada.

Lessons include topics to enable girls to grow strong during adolescence. Topics include dealing with body image and the media, resisting peer-pressure, making healthy decisions, and contributing to the community.

The goal for Girls on the Run is to EMPOWER all girls to…

  • have a strong sense of identity
  • give and receive support from a group
  • stand up for themselves in a healthy manner
  • have a healthy body image
  • understand their importance in the community
  • complete a 5K run/walk event

Currently our council serves girls in Snyder and Union County and continues to grow in the region. We hold a 10-week season in the spring and fall meeting twice a week after school.

Now serving schools in Snyder, Union, Montour and Northumberland Counties!
