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.
Our dynamic curriculum creatively integrates running games and workouts with lessons that help girls celebrate their strengths, build healthy relationships, and connect with the community. Girls are given the tools to make positive decisions when faced with life’s challenges. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing an appreciation of health and fitness.
The program is offered at partner schools throughout Dauphin, Cumberland, and Perry Counties. Each 10-12 week season, held in the spring and fall, culminates with a celebratory 5K running event.
