Girls on the Run is an after school program for girls in 3rd -8th grade. The program provides a supportive environment in which girls run with their friends and coaches while learning, practicing, and applying social and emotional skills and competencies. At the end of the 10 week program, the girls participate in a celebratory 5k that focuses on their accomplishments along with their families, friends and community.
