Girls on the Run is a nonprofit organization that inspires 3rd-8th grade girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident!
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.
The Fall 2013 season is up and running! It’s our biggest yet: 28 teams serving 400 girls with the help of over 100 volunteer coaches! See the full list of Fall 2013 teams.
