    The support of friends, family and community members like you enables Girls on the Run International to empower and motivate girls, facilitate the development of important skills and abilities, encourage lifelong health and fitness and build confidence through accomplishment. 



We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.
