We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experienced-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
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.
Along with the many volunteers, staff members such as the Executive Director, the Program Coordinator and the Race Director, are the core to running an effective Girls on the Run council. We are currently seeking to fill the positions of Executive Director and Race Director. More information can be found at: http://gotrnorthwoods.org/employment-opportunities/
