What Girls on the Run does:
At Girls on the Run we inspire girls to recognize their inner
strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained
volunteer coaches use our research-based curricula to teach
foundational lessons through dynamic discussions, activities and
running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls
in 3rd-8th grade develop essential skills to help them navigate
their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and
fitness. Our program culminates with girls positively impacting
their communities through a service project and being physically
and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.
Girls face social pressures and conflicting messages about how
they should act and who they should be. Studies show that during
adolescence, girls’ confidence drops about twice as much as
boys’, friendships become more complicated and challenging,
girls’ perceptions of their academic success declines, their risk for
anxiety and depression goes up and their participation in physical
activity plummets.

Why it Matters:
You can make a difference!  VOLUNTEER.
Be a coach,a running buddy or help at a Fun Run event.
