Mission Statement

We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

Description

So what does Girls on the Run do?

One girl put it this way, "I learned that I am the boss of my brain." Girls on the Run inspires girls to take charge of their lives and define the future on their terms. It’s a place where girls learn that they can. No limits. Only opportunities to be remarkable.

We teach life skills through fun, engaging lessons that celebrate the joy of movement during twice weekly practices over 10 weeks. Over the course of the program, girls develop and improve competence, feel confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care and compassion, create positive connections with peers and adults, and make a meaningful contribution to community and society.

At each season’s conclusion, the girls and their running buddies complete a 5K running event. Completing a 5K gives the girls a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. The results are the same--making the seemingly impossible, possible.
