Girls on the Run
Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based program designed to develop and enhance girls' social, psychological, and physical competencies to successfully navigate life experiences. Our Mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. Our 10-week program drives transformative change in the lives of elementary and middle school girls.
Why Girls on the Run Matters
* Girls' self-confidence begins to drop by age 9.
* 50% of girls ages 10 to 13 experience
bullying such as name calling and exclusion.
* Physical activity levels decline at age 10 and
continue to decrease throughout
Girls on the Run makes a stronger impact than organized sports or physical education in teaching life skills and building confidence in young girls.
