We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
Girls on the Run(r) is a 501(c)3 physical activity-based positive youth development (PA-PYD) program designed to develop and enhance girls’ social, psychological, and physical competencies to successfully navigate life experiences. The Girls on the Run(r) program combines training for a 5k with an interactive curriculum targeting the promotion of competence, confidence, connection, character, caring, and contribution.
Girls on the Run(r) creates a psychologically safe environment for girls to learn about themselves, connect with others, and contribute to the community. Focus on competition and ability in physical activity contexts is often a barrier for participation for girls. Girls report more enjoyment, satisfaction and positive relationships with others in climates focused on improvement, skill mastery, effort, and peer support.
