Mission Statement

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

Description

Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in the third through eighth grade with a mission to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Girls on the Run Serving Greater Kansas City serves more than 4,000 girls throughout fifteen counties in the greater Kansas City area each year.

The 10-week program is led by specially-trained coaches and takes the girls through lessons such as banning negative self-talk, the dangers of gossip, healthy eating habits, and a community service project, to name a few. Running is woven into each lesson to inspire a life-long appreciation for physical fitness and to build healthy habits that will last a lifetime. The season concludes with the Girls on the Run 5k, a non-competitive celebration of the girls’ achievements with their family, friends and coaches.
