Mission Statement

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

Description

We are a ten week after school program for girls in grades 3-6. The girls meet at their school with volunteer coaches to go through a curriculum that teaches them important life skills such as how to be a good friend, how to stand up to gossip and bullying, positive self talk, and even complete a community impact project all while using physical activity and movement to train for a 5k. At the end of the ten-weeks we have a celebratory final 5k where the girls at all of the sites come together and gain confidence through accomplishment! Our goal is to really develop the whole girl mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
