We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
Girls on the Run combines training for a one-mile or 5K (3.1 miles) community running event with healthy living education. Our curriculum-based programs instill self-esteem and strong values through health education, life-skills development, mentoring relationships, and physical training -- all of which are accomplished through an active collaboration with girls and their parents, schools, volunteers, staff and the community. Girls on the Run NYC is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of more than 208 locations across the United Stated and Canada.
