Girls on the Run is a transformational learning program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic, conversation-based 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.
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
