Our Core Values:

- Embrace our differences and find strength in our connectedness
- Express joy, optimism, and gratitude through our words, thoughts, and actions
- Nurture our physical, emotional, and spiritual health
- Lead with an open heart and assume positive intent
- Stand up for ourselves and others
Our Program: Girls on the Run is a nonprofit physical activity-based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd through 5th grades. The program encourages positive emotional, social, mental and physical development. Our research-based curriculum incorporates fun running games, dynamic discussions, and personal reflection. By the end of the 10-week program, girls, coaches, family and community members participate in a celebratory 5k run/walk event. This event builds confidence through accomplishment and provides a tangible sense of achievement and a framework for setting and achieving life goals.
