The Girls on the Run program provides girls (3rd through 5th
grade) with the necessary tools to embrace their individual
strengths. Designed to promote positive views of body
image, eating attitudes, and self-esteem, this program helps to
improve a sense of identity and an increasingly active lifestyle
for all program participants.
The curriculum promises to teach life skills through group
processing, running games, and workouts. The curricula are
based on extensive educational research and "on-the-track"
testing. The curriculum is taught by certified coaches and
includes understanding ourselves, valuing teamwork, and
understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large.
Girls choose and conduct a community service project. At
each season's conclusion, the girls complete a 5k running event
as a group.
