Girls on the Run
Girls on the Run is for girls in the 3rd through 5th grades. This program, sponsored by Magee Hospital, has a mission "to educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living."
Girls on the Run combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) running event with healthy living education. The programs instill self-esteem and strong values 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.
