Mission Statement

Girls on the Run is a life-changing, social-emotional learning program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. Our mission is to inspire and empower girls to live joyful, confident, and healthy lives. Our proven, research-based curriculum creatively uses running as a tool to teach life skills that increase confidence, critical-thinking, and conflict-resolution skills.
