The mission of Girls on the Run of Franklin County, Inc. is to prepare every preteen girl in Franklin County for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. The program is currently only available in Franklin County; stay tuned for Girls on the Run to be in neighboring counties soon.
Girls on the Run of Franklin County, Inc. is a life-changing, experiential learning program for girls ages eight to thirteen years old. The Girls on the Run program is for girls in grades 3 - 5; the Girls on Track program is for girls in grades 6 - 8. The 12-week programs combine training for a 5K run/walk event with self-esteem enhancing workouts. The goals of the programs are to encourage positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development. Each week, participants learn important life skills while completing a physical activity. The program culminates in a non-competitive 5K race event which gives the girls a chance to shine and an overwhelming sense of accomplishment.
