Girls on the Run is a youth empowerment program for girls in grades 3-8. Over the course of 10-weeks, girls engage in lessons to build self-confidence, personal courage, competence in their skills and the ability to create and maintain healthy, peer relationships. As part of the program, girls also learn to set and achieve goals by training to run a non-competitive 5k. At the end of the season, all girls enrolled in the program complete the 5k. Crossing the finish line is a tangible way for them to see their goal come to fruition.
