What exactly is Girls on the Run?

Girls on the Run® Hampton Roads is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a clear mission: We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-­based curriculum that creatively integrates running. The program is an evidence-­based,12­-week health and wellness experience for girls in 3rd through 8th grade. Girls meet twice a week after school, for 90 minutes, to learn concrete strategies for positive social, emotional, and physical development. They improve their self­-esteem, relationships, nutrition, fitness and civic service. Physical activity, and training to complete a 5k run, is woven into the program to inspire an appreciation of fitness and habits that lead to a lifetime of good relationships and health. Without the distractions of multiple initiatives, we bring razor sharp focus to our 20-lesson curriculum and coach certification training.
