Girls on the Run
Girls on the Run
Girls on the Run was developed specifically for girls in third, fourth and fifth grade (ages 8-12). The after-school program combines training to participate in a running event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts and a community service project. The teams – which consist of 8 to 15 girls – meet two times per week right after school for an hour and a half from mid March through late May. Most teams begin meeting at about 3:30 or 3:45 pm. The season culminates with the Girls on the Run 5k run/walk.
The goal of the program is to encourage positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development. The 10-week curriculum attempts to help each girl find and stay true to her REAL self.
This Spring 2014 Season we are very excited to announce that we will be introducing Curriculum 3! It is all new, so please plan to join us!
