Girls on the Run is a life-changing, character development program for girls in 3rd through 8th grade. The mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Girls on the Run combines training for a 5k (3.1 miles) event with healthy living education. Exercise, positive reinforcement, and encouraging role models help girls discover the confidence they need in the critical pre-teen years and beyond.
