Girls on the Run Orlando - Educating and preparing girls for a lifetime of self-esteem and healthy living.
Girls on the Run Orlando is a life changing, non-profit prevention program for girls in the 3rd through 8th grade. Girls on the Run combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) running event with healthy living education. Our 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 Orlando is a program of Track Shack Foundation and an affiliate council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of over 160 locations across the United States and Canada.
