Mission Statement

Girls on the Run is a life-changing, character development program for girls in 3rd through 8th grade. Our mission is to educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. We use the power of running to provide girls with the tools to:

  • Celebrate their unique self
  • Honor their voices
  • Recognize their gifts, and
  • Activate their personal power

Description

Girls on the Run combines training for a 5k (3.1 miles) event with healthy living education. We use exercise, positive reinforcement and encouraging role models to help girls discover the confidence they need in those critical pre-teen years and beyond. Through interactive activities such as running, playing games and discussing important issues, participants learn how to celebrate being their unique and real selves. Our hope is that every girl believes and can say, "I belong just the way I am."
