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.
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.
