Girls on the Run
Girls on the Run is an after school program, held in the Fall and Spring for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade girls, that uses the power of physical activity, life lessons, and positive mentoring to “prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living”. Through interactive activities including walking and running, playing games, and discussing important issues, girls learn how to celebrate being themselves and how to avoid the “Girl Box”. The “Girl Box” is a place where girls are valued more for their outward appearance than their character, which often results in low self-esteem and distorted body image. Girls on the Run focuses on educating girls about developing a healthy self-image and providing a safe space where they can say, “I belong just the way I am”.
Our goal is to empower all girls to:
- Have a strong sense of identity
- Give and receive support from a group
- Stand up for themselves in a healthy manner
- Have a healthy body image
- Understand the importance of their community
- Complete a 5k run/walk event
