Girls On The Run

Girls on the Run Capital Region

Transforming girls into joyful, healthy and confident young women is what Girls on the Run Capital Region is all about. Our evidence-based curriculum uses the power of running to help prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness. Over the course of 10 weeks, girls in 3rd through 8th grade learn about who they are and what makes them special, the importance of social relationships and teamwork, and understanding their connection with the world at large through community service. They learn about setting goals and moving forward at a healthy pace. Running becomes both an activity as well as a metaphor for living. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event.
