Girls on the Run is a life-changing, non-profit prevention program for girls in the 3rd through 8th grade. Our mission is to "educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living.
The 24-lesson Girls on the Run curriculum combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) running event with a healthy living education. Our programs instill self-esteem 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.
