Girls on the Run What we do!
At Girls on the Run we inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes 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. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event.
How much is the program and what is included in the cost?
The cost per girl is $50. We want to offer this program to all girls, regardless of financial status so the option to apply for payment plans and request financial assistance is available. This includes:
20 lesson including all related curriculum materials
Healthy snacks at each practice
Program t-shirt and water bottle
Entry to the end-of-season family-friendly 5K
Girl gift and medal at the 5K
The Power of “I Can”
Looking ahead….Every girl will participate in the 5K alongside a Running Buddy or adult chaperone of your choosing. This person is responsible for encouraging, motivating and keeping her safe throughout the run. You can start thinking about possible Running Buddies now and will receive more information and how to register for the 5K mid-season.
What are the expectations for girls and parents/guardians?
