We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
Girls on the Run® is a 501(c)(3) positive youth development program which combines an interactive curriculum and running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in preteen 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 10-week 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.
Girls on the Run is growing. In the 2015-2016 academic year, we served 427 girls, a 27% increase over the previous academic year. In the 2016-2017 academic year, the number of girls we serve will increase again. We invite you to help us expand to more schools and offer scholarships to girls who otherwise would not be able to afford this transformational program.
